Queer Formalism: The Return - William J. Simmons
|Author||William J. Simmons|
|Publisher||Floating Opera Press|
'Queer Formalism: The Return' expands upon William J. Simmons's original, influential essay “Notes on Queer Formalism” from 2013, offering novel ways of thinking about queer-feminist art outside of the critical-complicit and abstract-representational binaries that continue to haunt contemporary queer art. It therefore proposes a new kind of queer art writing, one that skirts the limits imposed by normative histories of art and film. Artists addressed in 'Queer Formalism: The Return' include, among others: Sally Mann, David Lynch, Lars von Trier, Math Bass, Lorna Simpson, Laurie Simmons, Alex Prager, Lana Del Rey, Jessica Lange, and Louise Lawler.
