* A comprehensive survey covering 125 years of art that has constructed, contested or otherwise responded to alternative forms of sexuality. The book traces the rich visual legacy of art's relationship to queer culture, from the emergence of homosexuality as an identity in the late nineteenth century to the pioneering 'genderqueers' of the early twenty-first century.

About the Author:

Catherine Lord is Professor of Studio Art at the University of California, Irvine. She is a writer, artist and curator and has received numerous fellowships and awards for her work on cultural politics, disability, queer identities, feminism and colonialism. Her books include The Summer of Her Baldness: A Cancer Improvisation (2004) and Son Colibri, Sa Calvitie: Miss Translation (2007). Richard Meyer is the Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor in Art History at Stanford University. He is the author of Outlaw Representation: Censorship and Homosexuality in Twentieth-Century American Art (2002), and his studies in modern and contemporary art focus on the ongoing debate over sexuality and gender, its effects on modern art and visual culture, and censorship and the public sphere.

Review:

"Big, queer, complex and sumptuously done-up... Over 500 beautiful illustrations [...] ranging from anonymous pornographic photos to some of the greatest paintings done by humans in the last 125 years... A heady and thoroughly pleasing mix up of low and high culture... [A] landmark tome... Sagely curated"—Dazed & Confused

"In this first book to be published on criticism and theory regarding queer culture, Phaidon has certainly set the bar high... A significant resource."—Aesthetica

"Serious and sleek... Ambitious and laudable... The book?s impressive archival reach means the international curaterati will be leafing through its pages for years to come... An exhibition in book form: a potentially groundbreaking, long overdue exhibition that is it is impossible to imagine a large-scale international institution having the courage or, perhaps more accurately, the corporate support to stage... An impressive archive of reprinted documents... A significant collection of texts linked to key historical moments... Meyer and Lord have produced a magnificent book"—Art Monthly

"Brilliant... A gorgeous coffee table book that showcases queer culture from nightclubs to high art... Ambitious and timely."—Diva

"[An] expertly researched combined reader and artist directory."—Art Review

"...A comprehensive historical overview of Queer Art... Chock full of photos, drawings, posters, texts, and more, documenting the rise of queer artistic voices in modern society."—LA Weekly

"A considered and sensitive exploration of how the art world has collided with queer culture."—ShortList
