Little But Fierce

Curated by Cameron Ledy, Little But Fierce is a group exhibition of small works by NYAA Alumni and second year students, and while the works are small, the presentation is grand. The exhibition thoroughly investigates ferocity and the myriad ways it can be demonstrated in art. Some artists tackle difficult subjects head on, including environmental issues, gender expression, and the body, while others display their ferocity with more formal choices: high key colors, aggressive impasto, and a diverse range of artistic styles. Little But Fierce challenges viewers’ expectation that small art has a small impact, and each small work shines as a gem in this treasure of a show.
