Art and Queer Culture
Art and Queer Culture by Catherine Lord and Richard Meyer
Art & Queer Culture surveys artworks that have constructed, contested or otherwise responded to homosexuality. It traces the shifting possibilities and constraints of sexual identity that have provided visual artists with a rich creative resource over the last 125 years. It includes not only pictures made and displayed under the rubric of fine art but also those intended for private, underground or otherwise restricted audiences. Scrapbooks, amateur artworks, cartoons, bar murals, anonymous photographs, activist posters - all appear in its pages, as do paintings, sculptures, art photographs and video installations.
