Outlooks : lesbian and gay sexualities and visual cultures
London [u.a.] : Routledge
Outlooks reflects the richness of lesbian and gay ways of producing and reading visual culturewhile tackling such issues as the advantages of adopting a queer perspective on past art, the responses of lesbian and gay artists to the AIDS crisis, and society's attempts to censor homosexual art. Providing a space for lesbian and gay artists to exhibit their work and discuss its relationship to sexuality, Outlooks It allows for a wide ranging theoretical and historical discussion of the place of lesbians and gay men within visual cultures and shows how much has been missed by a heterosexist approach to art history and the study of culture. Richly illustrated, Outlooks includes statements by contemporary lesbian and gay artists, photographers and performers as well as articles by art historians, cultural theorists and lesbian and gay activists. Contributors include Emmanuel Cooper, Richard Dellamora, Richard Kaye, Thais Morgan, Wendy Leeks, Reina Lewis, Katrina Rolley, Simon Watney.--Publisher.
