A revised, updated edition of the acclaimed historical overview of Queer art – available for the first time in paperback

Art & Queer Culture is an unprecedented survey of visual art and alternative sexuality from the late nineteenth century to the present. Beautifully illustrated and clearly written, this second edition has been updated to include art and visual culture of the current moment. A group of new contributors - themselves gay, lesbian, queer and trans - join the primary authors in emphasizing the global sweep of queer contemporary art and the newfound visibility of gender non-conforming artists.

In a compact, reader-friendly format, this revised volume packs over 130 years of queer art histories.

About the Authors

Catherine Lord is professor of studio art at the University of California, Irvine. Richard Meyer is Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor in Art History at Stanford University.
