Caroline Paquita (b. 1980) is a Brooklyn-based artist, zinester and founder of Pegacorn Press. Her first self-published zine, Brazen Hussy, used xerography like other punk zines of the 1990s, but it already shows evidence of Paquita’s distinctive aesthetic, which features strong line work. Paquita’s recent work has focused on envisioning “Womanimals”—half-woman/half-animal creatures that seek to interject a queered whimsy and irreverence into distracted modern culture. This exhibition showcases Paquita’s punk art zine-making over the past 18 years.
