Description
Summary:This book explores the work and careers of women, trans, and third-gender artists engaged in political activism. While some artists negotiated their own political status in their indigenous communities, others responded to global issues of military dictatorship, racial discrimination, or masculine privilege in regions other than their own. Women, trans, and third-gender artists continue to highlight and challenge the disturbing legacies of colonialism, imperialism, capitalism, communism, and other political ideologies that are correlated with patriarchy, primogeniture, sexism, or misogyny. The book argues that solidarity among such artists remains valuable and empowering for those who still seek legitimate recognition in art schools, cultural institutions, and the history curriculum. Gillian Hannum is Professor Emerita of Visual Studies and Art History at Manhattanville College in Purchase, New York, where she served on the faculty from 1987 to 2021.

She wrote Fashion, Identity, Power in Modern Asia (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018) and will publish School Uniforms in East Asia: Fashioning Statehood and Self in 2022. As an independent curator, she has collaborated with contemporary artists for exhibitions such as Violated Bodies: New Languages for Justice and Humanity.
