Summary:
A revised, updated edition of the acclaimed historical overview of Queer art - available for the first time in paperback Updated and revised, Art & Queer Culture is a comprehensive and definitive survey of artworks that have constructed, contested, or otherwise responded to alternative forms of sexuality. Rather than focusing exclusively on artists who self-identify as gay or lesbian, Art & Queer Culture instead traces the shifting possibilities and constraints of sexual identity that have provided visual artists with a rich creative resource over the last 130 years - and it does so in an accessible, authoritative voice, and with a wealth of rarely-seen imagery.
