Inhaltsangabe: In chess, when a pawn reaches the eighth square on the far side of the board, the player can swap it for a piece from his opponent's set. So the pawn--a lowly foot soldier--can transform into a queen, the least powerful figure can transform into the epitome of power, and a man can become a woman--just like that. Issues of sexuality are playing out around us all the time, quaking and transmuting under the surface of every family exchange and embedded in all of our popular media images. This scholarly and yet still erotic compendium examines, through works by more than 70 artists, historical and social developments in human sexuality, taking on all facets of drag, gender, queerness and transsexuality. Artists include Diane Arbus, Francis Bacon, Matthew Barney, Louise Bourgeois, Nan Goldin, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, David Hockney, Jasper Johns, Robert Mapplethorpe, Tracey Moffatt, Bruce Nauman, Robert Rauschenberg and Cindy Sherman.
Über den Autor:
Francis Bacon was born in Dublin, Ireland, in 1909. He emerged as one of the leading painters of the 20th century during the 40s and 50s. Bacon expanded the possibilities of figurative art with a bold, expressionistic style at a time when abstraction was the dominant mode. He was also one of the first artists to depict overtly homosexual themes. He stands as a towering figure in 20th-century art, having established a huge influence on younger generations of painters. He died in 1992.
Matthew Barney (b. 1967) has exhibited all over the world, with solo exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum, among others. His work has been included in international group shows, including the Whitney Biennial and the Carnegie International. Barney was awarded the Europa 2000 prize at the 1993 Venice Biennale and was the first recipient of the Guggenheim Museum's Hugo Boss Prize in 1996.
Born in 1911 in Paris, Louise Bourgeoiswas raised in a household that famously included her father's mistress, who was also Louise's nanny. She studied philosophy and mathematics before turning to art in 1934, and over the next few years studied at various art academies and in the atelier of Fernand Leger, among others. She moved to New York in 1938 with her new husband, American art historian Robert Goldwater. Her first U.S. showing was in a print exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum, and over the next 50 years, she exhibited consistently in solo and group shows. In 1982, Bourgeois was the subject of the first retrospective ever given to a woman artist at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and her work has remained in the spotlight ever since.
Felix Gonzalez-Torres was born in Cuba in 1957 and grew up in Puerto Rico before moving to New York City. His work has been the subject of several major solo exhibitions both during his life and after his death in 1996. His estate is represented by Andrea Rosen Gallery in New York.
Jasper Johns was born in 1930 in South Carolina, where he grew up wanting to be an artist. Emerging in the late 50s as a force in the American art scene, his richly worked paintings of maps, flags, and targets led the artistic community away from abstract expressionism toward a new emphasis on the concrete, paving the way for Pop Art and minimalism. The artist lives and works in New York.
Annette Messager, born in France in 1943, has been working since the 1960s and showing since the 1970s. Her portfolio includes painting, embroidery, sculpture, assemblage, collage, film montage and writing. She says of her work that, "Conceptual art interests me in the same way as the art of the insane, astrology, and religious art. It's not the ideologies which these areas perpetuate [that] interest me: they are for me, above all else, repertories of forms. I make fun of sorcery and alchemy even if I make full use of their signs."
Robert Rauschenberg was born in Port Arthur, Texas, in 1925. After studying in Paris on the G.I. Bill in his twenties, he returned to the U.S., pausing only to investigate the Black Mountain College art scene before taking on--and swiftly conquering--New York. He had his first solo show at Leo Castelli Gallery in his early thirties, and quickly went on to become one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. Rauschenberg is represented in every major museum collection, and many retrospective exhibitions of his work have toured the globe--including a thematic one at the Guggenheim Museum in 1997. In 1970, he moved to Captiva Island, off the Gulf Coast of Florida, where he still lives and works.
Monica Bonvicini was born in Venice in 1965, and lives and works in both Berlin and Los Angeles.
Gilbert & George live and work together in London's Spitalfields neighborhood. Their solo exhibitions have appeared at Tate Modern, the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and the Guggenheim Museum, New York.
During a relatively brief career, Diane Arbus created a distinctly personal style of portraiture that made her one of the great 20th-century photographers. Born in New York in 1923, by the 1950s she was supporting herself by working for magazines such as Vogue and Glamour. Two Guggenheim awards (1963 and 1966) allowed her to travel and undertake her own projects. The artist died in 1971. Retrospectives of her work have been shown at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
Born in 1954 in Arlington, Massachusetts, David Armstrong had first intended to study painting but switched almost immediately to photography upon entering art school in the mid-70s. He spent the 70s, 80s, and 90s living in Boston and New York, working primarily on black-and-white portraits. After moving to Berlin in 1992, his focus changed again and he began to concentrate on color landscapes. Armstrong's work has been shown throughout the United States and Europe, including at the 1995 Whitney Biennial, New York. His previous publications include The Silver Cordand Nan Goldin/David Armstrong: A Double Life.
Nan Goldin, born in Washington, D.C., in 1953, lives and works in New York and London. She has had solo exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, among many others. Among Goldin's numerous books are Devil's Playground, I'll Be Your Mirror and The Ballad of Sexual Dependency.
Peter Hujar was born in Trenton, New Jersey, in 1934, and lived and worked in New York City's East Village from the age of 16 until his death in 1987. A central figure in the downtown cultural scene in the 1970s and early 80s, Hujar influenced many of today's most celebrated photographers. Nan Goldin has said that his work, 'like that of so few photographers, can't be forgotten and becomes even deeper and more compelling over time.' Published compilations include Portraits in Life and Death, Peter Hujar: A Retrospective, and Animals and Nudes, and his photographs are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
Catherine Opie has been the subject of one-person shows at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; and the St. Louis Art Museum. Her work is in the collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, among many others. She teaches photography at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Dayanita Singh was born in 1961 in New Delhi, India, where she continues to live and work. Singh showed works as part of a billboard project in Boston and Hartford, Connecticut, in the Fall of 2006. Her work has been featured in recent group shows at The Asia Society and Queens Museum of Art in New York and at Tate Modern in London. Her solo project, "Chairs," was exhibited at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston in 2005. She studied visual communication at the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, and documentary photography at the International Center of Photography, New York.
John Lindell is an artist and writer living in New York.
Zoe Leonard was born in Liberty, New York, in 1961. She has had major solo exhibitions at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Tate Modern in London, among many other venues. Her work was featured at Documenta 12, 2007.
Australian artist Tracey Moffatt studied visual communications at the Queensland College of Art, from which she graduated in 1982. She moved to Sydney, and then to New York, where she continues to live and work. Moffatt first gained critical acclaim for her short film Night Cries: A Rural Tragedy, which was selected for official competition at the 1990 Cannes Film Festival. Her first feature film, Bedevil, was shown at the Cannes Film Festival in 1993. She has also made documentary films and music videos. She is represented in New York by Stux Gallery.
Robert Gober was born in Wallingford, Connecticut, in 1954 and moved to New York in 1976. In 1983 he abandoned painting and turned his attention to sculpture. Since 1979 he has had numerous exhibitions, both in the United States and abroad. He represented the United States at the Venice Biennale in 2001, and his work has been the subject of one-person museum exhibitions at such institutions as the Dia Center for the Arts, New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, D.C. and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
