The first publication to address queer feminist politics, methods and theories in relation to the visual arts, including new media, installation and performance art. Despite the crucial contribution of considerations of 'queer' to feminism in other disciplines of the humanities, and the strong impact of feminist art history on queer visual theory, a visible and influential queer feminist art history has remained elusive.
This anthology traces how and why this identification of art with sexual expression or repression arose and how the terms have shifted in tandem with artistic and theoretical debates.
In March 2016 the Hear Me Roar! Festival invited LADA to curate a small selection of items for a Pop-up Study Room during the Festival. Hear Me Roar! is a festival of feminist arts in Lancaster. In 2016 the theme was Ages, Stages and Phases celebrating feminist art across the generations.
