ART PAPERS 18.06 - Nov/Dec 1994
This issue, Representing Lesbian Subjectivities, is a result of guest editor Patricia Cronin's February 1994 symposium. Inside, Harmony Hammond critiques recent Bad Girls and Stonewall exhibitions as being ahistorical, lesbophobic, and taking a commodifying approach to work by lesbian artists; Liz Kotz focuses on problematic expressions of lesbian sexuality that include the male body, male homosexuality, cutting, scarification, and S/M practice; Mary Gossy theorizes that lesbian genitals are virtually invisible to the non-lesbian eye (looking particularly at pornography); and Eve Oishi uses Audre Lorde's Uses for the Erotic to theorize lesbian eroticism in recent video by four lesbians of color.
Noteworthy reviews include, among several others, Judith Page's review of Face of the Gods: Art and Altars of Africa and the African Americas, Kathy L. Maschke's review of Judy Bamber's sexually explicit and hyper-realistic oil paintings, and Bernadine Heller-Greenman's review of Clive King's recent exhibition.
