Queer Whitechapel: Documents of Contemporary Art

#ad
The MIT Press #ad - Key artists' writings that have influenced and catalyzed contemporary queer artistic practice. Historically, “queer” was the slur used against those who were perceived to be or made to feel abnormal. While queer draws its politics and affective force from the history of non-normative, and bisexual communities, lesbian, gay, it is not equivalent to these categories, nor is it an identity.

Beginning in the 1980s, “queer” was reappropriated and embraced as a badge of honor. K. Together these texts describe and examine the ways in which artists have used the concept of queer as a site of political and institutional critique, as a spur to action, as a framework to develop new families and histories, and as a basis from which to declare inassimilable difference.

Queer Whitechapel: Documents of Contemporary Art #ad - Artists and writers includeNayland Blake, Leigh Bowery, Gregg Bordowitz, AA Bronson, A. Mit Pr. Yale university press academic. By definition, there can be no singular “queer art. Here, in the first documents of contemporary Art anthology to be centered on artists' writings, numerous conversations about queer practice are brought together from diverse individual, social and cultural contexts.

Artists who identify their practices as queer today call forth utopian and dystopian alternatives to the ordinary, and forge unprecedented kinships, relationships, embrace criminality and opacity, adopt outlaw stances, loves, and communities. Rather than a book of queer theory for artists, this is a book of artists' queer tactics and infectious concepts.

Beyond Objecthood: The Exhibition as a Critical Form since 1968 The MIT Press

#ad
The MIT Press #ad - The rise of the exhibition as critical form and artistic medium, from Robert Smithson's antimodernist non-sites in 1968 to today's institutional gravitation toward the participatory. In 1968, robert smithson reacted to michael Fried's influential essay “Art and Objecthood” with a series of works called non-sites.

Yale university press academic. Mit. In beyond objecthood, james voorhies traces a genealogy of spectatorship through the rise of the exhibition as a critical form―and artistic medium. Artists like smithson, and michael asher sought to reconfigure and expand the exhibition and the museum into something more active, Group Material, open, and democratic, by inviting spectators into new and unexpected encounters with works of art and institutions.

Forensic architecture Violence at the Threshold of Detectability. Mit Pr. Prestel. Voorhies examines recent artistic and curatorial work by liam gillick, at such institutions as Documenta, Manifesta, Thomas Hirschhorn, Maria Lind, Carsten Höller, Apolonija Šušteršic, and Office for Contemporary Art Norway, e-flux, and others, and he considers the continued potential of the exhibition as a critical form in a time when the differences between art and entertainment increasingly blur.

Beyond Objecthood: The Exhibition as a Critical Form since 1968 The MIT Press #ad - While fried described the spectator's connection with a work of art as a momentary visual engagement, images, walking, Smithson's non-sites asked spectators to do something more: to take time looking, reading, and thinking about the combination of objects, seeing, and texts installed in a gallery. This practice was sharply critical of the ingrained characteristics long associated with art institutions and conventional exhibition-making; and yet, Voorhies finds, over time the critique has been diluted by efforts of the very institutions that now gravitate to the “participatory.
