Booklist Review

Updated and revised to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, the new paperback edition of Phaidon's 2013 classic explores how visual artists have constructed, contested, and responded to non-heterosexuality over the past 125 years, including both well-known works and rarely seen images from scrapbooks, bar murals, activist posters, and other works created for private consumption. The book's two-part introduction features an essay focusing on the years from 1885 to 1979 and another covering the period from 1980 to the present. The editors selected one work per artist, no matter their importance or artistic output; in total, 250 artists, both established and lesser known, are represented, and brief biographies of all the artists featured are included. The second edition includes a new chapter, Here and Now, which focuses on artistic exploration of trans identities and features global examples of contemporary queer culture. As befitting the subject, many of the images are sexually explicit, but not gratuitous. An important resource for students of art, art history, and gender and sexuality studies, this new edition of Art and Queer Culture is recommended for academic libraries.--Lindsay Harmon Copyright 2010 Booklist
