Fever : the art of David Wojnarowicz by David Wojnarowicz( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A central figure in New York's East Village art scene of the 1980s, Wojnarowicz was a painter, sculptor, photographer, writer, installation artist, musician, and video- and filmmaker. After being diagnosed as HIV-positive in the late 1980s, Wojnarowicz engaged in widely publicized debates over medical research and funding, censorship in the arts, and politically-sanctioned homophobia, lending his art a sharply political edge. The last few years of his life were an intense flurry of activity in a variety of mediums, fueled by rage and alienation that helped set the tone for contemporary art's exploration of social and private identities." --
In a different light : visual culture, sexual identity, queer practice by Nayland Blake( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a Different Light documents a landmark exhibition at the University Art Museum, and features curatorial essays, over 100 reproductions of all the artwork in the exhibition, and a selection of fiction, personal essays, rants, and image-text projects on the power of visual culture. This book explores the resonances of gay, lesbian and queer experience in American culture, particularly in the past thirty years. In a Different Light engages a range of queer issues, aesthetic concerns, and formal styles. Instead of inquiring "What does lesbian or gay art look like?" the curators ask: "How are queer artists looking at the world?" This is the first time that a major American museum has considered this important subject in a broad cross-generational context. The inclusion of literary work in the context of this exhibition catalog brings into focus the relationships between artists and writers in lesbian and gay culture, the interaction of genres and media in these representations, and the impact of visual culture - the arts, popular iconography, advertising, and style - on the formation of identity

The incredible variety of AckerUs body of work has been distilled into a single volume that reads like a communique from the front lines of late-20th century America.

"This provocative collection of short fiction, essays, and poetry freely delves into forbidden zones of sex and transgressive behavior.

In the shadow of the American dream : the diaries of David Wojnarowicz by David Wojnarowicz( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few artists in the late twentieth century have captured the emotional, sexual, and political chaos of urban life like David Wojnarowicz. In the Shadow of the American Dream chronicles Wojnarowicz's life from age seventeen until his AIDS-related death at thirty-seven, and draws on his experiences at the margins of American society. After his HIV+ diagnosis Wojnarowicz engaged in highly public debates about health care, homophobia, and censorship, creating deeply political art even as he became a target for the right wing."--BOOK JACKET. "In the Shadow of the American Dream tells the story of Wojnarowicz's emergence as an artist and writer: from publishing his first photographs - the Arthur Rimbaud in New York series and writing monologues based on the world of outsiders he encountered; to touring Europe as a renowned painter and publishing his tour de force, Close to the Knives. In the Shadow of the American Dream offers an intimate glimpse of the New York art scene in the 1980s, and is finally a record of the private Wojnarowicz, falling in love for the first time, exploring erotic possibilities on the Hudson River piers, becoming overwhelmed by the demands of survival, and searching for the pleasure and freedom he believed one could live on."--Jacket
Sweet oblivion : the urban landscape of Martin Wong by Martin Wong( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The visionary paintings of Martin Wong, one of the unsung geniuses of New York's East Village art scene of the 1980s, are collected here and examined in depth for the first time. Entirely self-taught, Wong creates intricate compositions that combine gritty social documents, cosmic witticisms, and highly charged symbolic languages - customized manual alphabets for the deaf, street graffiti, Nuyorican poetry, hand-lettered signs, meticulously rendered brick facades, rearrangements of Zodiac signs - sometimes within a single painting. The urban landscape of Loisaida, the Hispanic section of the Lower East Side where Wong lives, is the source of his imagery. Whatever the theme - the survival of a neighborhood besieged by drugs and crime, homoerotic fantasies of men in uniform, the multiplicity of meaning in language, the kitsch and ornamentation of Chinatown USA - Wong's work is visually startling and movingly autobiographical
Interaction : artistic practice in the network( Book )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book features an international group of artists, scholars, critics, architects, students, technicians and curators who discussed the transformations wrought by the Internet
Critical condition : women on the edge of violence( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While Aileen Wournos, the alleged 'female serial killer' who insists she killed in self-defense, sits on death row, Hollywood filmmakers appropriate her story. Meanwhile, in our perverse justice system the sexual assaults and murders of forty-five women in San Diego are discounted by police and given file code name NHI, No Humans Involved, because the victims are perceived as marginal: sex workers, informants, homeless or working class women. The women in Critical Condition challenge abuse and invisibility with powerful literary and visual art. They put a spin on issues of women and violence by focusing on women won fight back, sometimes killing their abusers; women who control their own sexualities and challenge conventional ideas of sex; women who assert images of themselves in a cultural landscape where none appear; women who reframe personal histories that were meant to shame them into oblivion. Critical Condition includes Carla Kirkwood's autobiographical performance monologue about a girl, sexually abused by the men in her family, who becomes a feminist activist in the '70's, and an artist in the '90's. In impassioned poetry, Wanda Coleman takes a look at the embattled lives of African-Americans, particularly in Los Angeles. Sapphire's searing poems about race and self-realization exposé the fallacy of the nuclear family and the vicious cycle of domestic violence. The Theory Girls' performance script, 'If You Were like the Heroine in a Country and Western song, ' is both detailed expose and black comedy framing the relationship between Aileen Wuornos and Arlene Pralle (the born-again Christian who became enamored of Wuornos after her conviction) within the context to Hollywood's fascination for women with guns. Here, too, are panel discussions, taken from a conference at The Lab and San Francisco Camerawork, that focus on self-revelation and art, women who kill, and the question of race and gender in the media. There are over twenty-five pages of visual art, including the Women's Work billboard campaign promoting public awareness of domestic violence, wit work by Barbara Kruger and Carrie Mae Weems. Critical Condition shows women on the edge of violence, defending themselves, asserting public images that resist conventional ideas of powerlessness and victimization, and combating the dominant paradigm with irreverence and fierce commitment."--Jacket

Re:play : game design + game culture( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Computer and video games are only a few decades old, but in that short time they have exploded into our culture - as high-tech playtoys, as controversial popular media, and as a major economic force. Re:Play brings together game designers, new media artists, interdisciplinary curators and players in debate and conversation about technology and design, gaming addictions and geek subcultures, the aesthetics of violence, gender transgressions, the erotics of gaming, and the business of play - capturing the zeitgeist that is digital games."--Jacket
