- As gender and sexual identities continue to evolve and shift, art too evolves and shifts as artists challenge social conventions and push the boundaries of what has been deemed acceptable. Alex Pilcher guides us on journey through a wealth of deeply emotive and powerful queer art from around the world.
- This book tells the story of queer art from 1900 to the present and explores identity, eroticism, relationships, hidden desires, love and gender through various mediums including drawing, painting, photography, sculpture and film. Featured artists include Egon Schiele, Duncan Grant, Romaine Brooks, Edward Burra, Salvador Dali, Frida Kahlo, David Hockney, Diane Arbus, Francis Bacon, Bhupen Khakhar, Zanele Muholi, Allyson Mitchell and Tomoko Kashiki.
A Queer Little History of Art ultimately conveys the key role that art plays in changing attitudes and identities and celebrates over 100 years of queer art and the community that has embraced it.
