9780714849355: Art and Queer Culture

* 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.

From Bookforum:

All the work on display in Art and Queer Culture seems to share a certain 'tude. I can only call it defiance. The editors write that they selected pieces that "draw out... the deviant force of homosexuality," leading to unexpected but illuminating choices, especially for well known artists. Given how much the status of queers has changed--from criminals to freaks to marriage material--this book could become the standard text for understanding their impact on art history. --Cynthia Carr
