Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ron Athey is an iconic figure in contemporary art and performance. In his frequently bloody portrayals of life, death, crisis, and fortitude in the time of AIDS, Athey calls into question the limits of artistic practice. These limits enable Athey to explore key themes including gender, sexuality, radical sex, queer activism, post-punk and industrial culture, tattooing and body modification, ritual, and religion. This landmark publication includes Atheyandrsquo;s own writings, commissioned essays by maverick artists and leading academics, and full-color images of Atheyandrsquo;s art and performances since the early 1980s. The diverse range of artistic and critical contributors to the book reflects Atheyandrsquo;s creative and cultural impact, among them musician Antony Hegarty of Antony and the Johnsons who contributed a foreword.
