Kiss My Genders

"Adds historical depth and social breadth to the emerging category of trans and non-binary art.” – Juliet Jacques, Frieze

Kiss My Genders celebrates more than 30 international artists whose work explores and challenges traditional gender categories. The book features works from the late 1960s through to the present, and focuses on artists who draw on their own experiences to create content and forms that challenge accepted or stable definitions of gender. These include Lyle Ashton Harris, Sadie Benning, Nayland Blake, Jimmy DeSana, Chitra Ganesh, Peter Hujar, Juliana Huxtable, Zoe Leonard, Renate Lorenz and Pauline Boudry, Kent Monkman, Zanele Muholi, Catherine Opie, Christina Quarles and Del LaGrace Volcano, among many others. Working across mediums, many of these artists treat the body as a sculpture, and in doing so open up new possibilities for gender, beauty and representations of the human form.

From pop culture and gender dissidence to the embrace of the "monstrous" or "freaky," from the politics of pose to transfeminism and politics on the street, each of these artists throws light on a different way of seeing.


"Golden Record 3" (1974) by Luciano Castelli is reproduced from 'Kiss My Genders.'

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Guardian

Jonathan Jones

Kiss My Genders celebrates artists “whose work counters entrenched gender narratives”. There’s certainly not much left of those narratives by the end.

240 pages of remarkable trans art in 'Kiss My Genders'

240 pages of remarkable trans art in 'Kiss My Genders'

Zanele Muholi's "Phila I, Parktown" (2016) is reproduced from Kiss My Genders, the Hayward Gallery's critically-acclaimed exploration of—and challenge to—traditional gender categories. For Muholi, photography is "a space for people to be visible, respected and recognized." In the Somnyama Ngonyama: Hail the Dark Lioness self-portrait series from which this work is drawn (2012–present), Muholi uses everyday, domestic materials—including rubber gloves, clothes pegs and scouring pads—to craft elaborate costumes or backdrops that hold deep psychological importance. "Muholi has deliberately altered the contrast of these black-and-white images in order to enhance the dark tones," Lucy Biddle writes. "Speaking of this series, Muholi has said: 'I'm reclaiming my blackness, which I feel is continuously performed by the privileged other.'" continue to blog
