    Otherwise: Imagining queer feminist art histories is the first book 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 book fills the gap by providing a range of chapters by key North American and European scholars, both emerging and established, who address the historiographic and political questions arising from the relationship between art history and queer theory in order to help map exclusions and to offer models of a new queer feminist art historical or curatorial approach.


    '.the volume as a whole makes a compelling case for more queer feminist art histories.the essays and dialogues range over twentieth-century and contemporary art and curatorial practice as well as theory, enacting a vibrant debate over queer feminism-its possibilities, challenges, and place in the visual arts and the academy.'
    Alison Syme, CAA Reviews
