  1. Outlaw representation : censorship & homosexuality in twentieth-century American art

    Meyer, Richard, 1966-
    Oxford ; New York : Oxford University Press, 2002.

    This text considers the relationship among homosexuality, censorship, and self-representation in American art from 1934-1990 by examining a series of historical episodes in which work by gay male artists was suppressed or censored. Beginning with Paul Cadmus's painting and ending with an exploration of the AIDS activist artwork by the collective Gran Fury, Meyer focuses particularly on the work of Cadmus, Andy Warhol, and Robert Mapplethorpe. In this well-illustrated book, Meyer documents how gay artists secured a visual language of self-representation and how that language was contested by the larger culture. Meyer reveals how the outlaw status of homosexuality itself constituted part of the pictorial languages by which gay artists signified their difference from and defiance of the mainstream.

  3. Naked Hollywood : Weegee in Los Angeles

    Meyer, Richard, 1966-
    New York : Skira Rizzoli ; Los Angeles, CA : In association with the Museum of Contemporary Art, c2011.

    In 1946, the tabloid photographer known as Weegee relocated from New York City to Los Angeles. Abandoning the grisly crime scenes for which he was best known, Weegee trained his camera instead on Hollywood celebrities, starlets, autograph seekers, and shop-window mannequins, sometimes distorted through trick lenses and multiple exposures. "Now I could really photograph the subjects I liked, " said Weegee of his newfound career in Los Angeles, "I was free." Following the photographer's lead, the exhibition and accompanying catalog documents the lurid, irresistible undersides of stardom, fandom, commerce, and self-promotion in mid-century Los Angeles. In addition to presenting approximately 200 photographs, many of which have never before been shown, the book explores Weegee's related work as an author, filmmaker, and photo-essayist. The photo-book "Naked Hollywood, " by Weegee and Mel Harris (published in hardcover in 1953 and released as a pulp paperback in 1955), provides the inspiration and departure point for the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, exhibition and catalog, the latter of which reproduces the pulp paperback edition in its entirety.
