This review is from: Damn Fine Art: By New Lesbian Artists (Sexual politics) (Paperback)
--------------------------------

Damn Fine Art by New Lesbian Artists
Cherry Smyth.

Lavishly Illustrated with over 50 B&W /Col pictures.

The first In-depth Study of Contemporary Lesbian Art.

Introduction:
"When this project first began, it was intended to critique the emergence of recent visual art by lesbians that could be dubbed 'queer' - confrontational, anti-assimilationist, provacative work that transgreses the idea of what 'lesbian art' could be.

The eloquent, camp portrait of Sadie Lee, the frank, sexy photography of Della Grace, Nicole Eisenman's exuberant, painterly murals and the richly coloured, transgender photographic studies by Catherine Opie, to name a few, seemed to share an approach which gloried in exploding the positive imagery of 1980s identity politics and honouring formal art historical traditions, while widely subverting conventional content.

These and other unashamedly out artists are not only gainin recognition from the mainstream art world, but are doing it on their own terms."
