Synopsis: Art and Queer Culture is a comprehensive and definitive survey of artworks that have constructed, contested or otherwise responded to alternative forms of sexuality. Not a book exclusively about artists who identify themselves as gay or lesbian, Art and Queer Culture instead traces the shifting possibilities and constraints of sexual identity that have provided visual artists with a rich creative resource over the last 125 years.

Review: In this first book to be published on criticism and theory regarding queer culture, Phaidon has certainly set the bar high ... a significant resource

brilliant ... a gorgeous coffee table book that showcases queer culture from nightclubs to high art ... ambitious and timely

[an] expertly researched combined reader and artist directory
Art Review

big, queer, complex and sumptuously done-up ... over 500 beautiful illustrations [...] ranging from anonymous pornographic photos to some of the greatest paintings done by humans in the last 125 years ... a heady and thoroughly pleasing mix up of low and high culture ... [a] landmark tome ... sagely curated
Dazed & Confused

serious and sleek ? ambitious and laudable ? the book?s impressive archival reach means the international curaterati will be leafing through its pages for years to come. ? an exhibition in book form: a potentially groundbreaking, long overdue exhibition that is it is impossible to imagine a large-scale international institution having the courage or, perhaps more accurately, the corporate support to stage. ? an impressive archive of reprinted documents. ? a significant collection of texts linked to key historical moments ? Meyer and Lord have produced a magnificent book.Art Monthly

. . .a comprehensive historical overview of Queer Art. . .chock full of photos, drawings, posters, texts, and more, documenting the rise of queer artistic voices in modern society.LA Weekly
