A Well Written Research on an Interesting Topic
le 7 juin 2002 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Richard Meyer has added a significant volume to the compendium of books on American art and its kinship to social mores. Using Censorship as a topic should arouse the interest of all who value freedom of expression and it is to that audience that I think this books plays to best. Yes, the art examined here is queer art, but it is art that is a significant part of the 20th Century, not just an isolated school. His chosen artists are Paul Cadmus, Robert Mapplethorpe, Andy Warhol and Gran Fury and in presenting these artists he is concomittanly investigating the influence of such highly important social issues as AIDS, consumerism, POP culture, the whole Jesse Helms/Jerry Farwell/Christian Coalition debacle in a way that makes the reader look into the motivational behavior of the past century that continues into this century. The book is well documented in images and footnotes, making it a must for school libraries and fellow scholars. Despite the confrontational topic of the book, Meyer writes so well that he maintains interest even when extending his examples a bit too far. He overall theme appears to be that there is some good to be found in censorship: media attention derived from such art brings heightened awareness and eventually more prestige and longevity to the art and involved artists. One major complaint about this book: the typeface point is so small that it makes reading the pages a visual strain. In an otherwise expensive layout, one wonders why the typeface couldn't have been changed to one more user friendly.

Art and American Society: Fascinating
le 9 août 2010 - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book was purchased as an optional textbook for a class held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The class itself was a revelation in the way "Queer" art (read the book to get the actual definition of this term--it's probably not as limited to the familiar concept you may have run across) is perceived, as well as indicating the diversity of the Museum's holdings and approach to education. Political as well as artistic strategies are explored, and although not all artists practicing during the time frame of the book, which is considerable, are mentioned, the few that are introduced are given in-depth coverage. Big names that you think you might understand by this time are given fresh perspective and, if you're an art history buff as myself, further reasons to consider their output. This holds true for others you may be exploring on your own: insights from this book are easily transferred beyond its pages. I walked away from the book (and class) with more questions then when I first encountered it, and the inspiration is exciting. This volume will increase your awareness of art in society and its perception by some as beauty and others, menace. Lucid, knowledgeable: great read. NOTE: some graphic sexual images.

Brilliant, ground-breaking work
le 16 avril 2003 - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is an amazing book, rich in detail and images, but also exploring with passion and intensity a border between queer studies, art history, and cultural studies. It demonstrates an astonishing command of the social and political history of the period it covers, along with theoretical depth and great sophistication in the reading and analysis of visual materials. I was mesmerized. Written beautifully, this book makes its erudition appear effortless, but in fact it is an extremely courageous and innovative text, bringing together disparate worlds of scholarship into a brilliant synthesis. It neither panders to popular tastes, nor remains trapped in disciplinary jargon; instead, it is an examination, full of intellectual integrity, of the intersection of the law and artistic production, showing how artists moved around and through what might have been devastating censorship by entrenched homophobia. It is to be expected that the book itself will encounter resistance, since it breaks new ground with such authority, unnerving those with vested interests in disciplinary boundaries or in policing representation.

A Smart And Sexy Must-Have
le 10 mars 2002 - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is a smart and sexy must-have for anyone interested in censorship and homosexuality in American art and popular culture. First, the book is an incredible archive of important American 20th century gay images - from famous (infamous) Cadmus paintings, George Platt Lynes photos, Warhol silkscreens, and Mapplethorpe photos, to less well-known but no less provocative and significant images like David Wojnarowicz's explicit and controversial "Sex Series" and Gran Fury's protest posters and bill boards. The book would be worth buying for the images alone. But it is Richard Meyer's careful research, sharp observations and lucid writing that transform the book from simply a collection of key queer images in to a compelling argument regarding the historical relationship between censorship and public perceptions of homosexuality. The book is a pleasure to read, managing to be at the same time densely packed with original ideas and utterly clear and accessible.
