In a different light : visual culture, sexual identity, queer practice by NAYLAND BLAKE( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and held by 322 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
Jack Smith and the destruction of Atlantis by Mary Jordan( Visual )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of interviews and clips by and about the revolutionary American artist Jack Smith. Filmmaker, actor, and pioneer of underground cinema, he is generally acclaimed as a founding father of American Performance Art, and has been critically recognized as a master photographer. The film also delves into Smith's tenuous relationship with Andy Warhol -- who adopted Smith's ideas in his own work. Pays homage to New York's ultimate anti-hero and the original King of the Underground

Matthew Benedict: the mage's pantry by Charles Beyer( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Some of the seemingly nostalgic works by Matthew Benedict (born 1968 in Rockville, Connecticut) recall illustrations from old children's books, with pirates, saints, and freemasons recurrently populating his paintings, photographs, embroidered pieces, and sculptures. The quiet, beautiful, and yet uncanny dream world of his symbolic figures, and his allegorical references to literature or history, may elude comprehension in the mind of the uninitiated observer. Magical and enigmatic, these captivating works seduce the viewer's eye while their meaning and pictorial agendas share and reveal their mysteries. This is the first monograph to examine Matthew Benedict's entire oeuvre, as well as its references to illustrative and decorative conventions and techniques."--BOOK JACKET
