Editorial Reviews

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

Review

. . . a fascinating and much-needed volume. . . one of the best art books of [2013] and a necessary companion to any survey of modern and contemporary art.―BLOUIN ArtInfo

Sweeping. . . This book grapples with that complexity, looks good, and - this is still too rare - is global in scope.―Holland Cotter, The New York Times

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's an incredible and much-needed book on past and present queer art. The amazon editorial reviews are on the nose. Yes, it's that good. This can be described as a true "survey" and not a measly selection of 20-30 artists. Starts with two critical essays by Richard Meyer and Catherine Lord and then the art is split into seven different sections beginning in 1885 all the way up to the present. Additional critical text and documents are found in the last part of the book, which mirrors the chronological sequence of the previous seven sections, and ends with artist biographies. If you're not excited already, you should be. Because the book is also gorgeous. Great design, beautiful reproductions. Do yourself a favor and also check out the magnificent work of Richard Meyer. Although more focused, his book Outlaw Representation has been a staple in my library and in my research.

This is by far the most thorough overview of queer art-making practice in the past century. A richly visual and beautifully designed coffee table book, with also the added bonus that it's a BRILLIANT read. I took this big book to bed and read it cover to cover! A must have for anyone interested in thought provoking texts & images on contemporary art/artists.
