  • Description: "This retrospective monograph will examine John Waters's influential career with a focus on the photographs, sculpture, soundworks, and video he has made since the early 1990s, works that deploy the artist's renegade humor to reveal the ways that mass media and celebrity embody cultural attitudes, moral codes, and shared tragedy. Waters has long been on the leading edge of a broadened understanding of American individualism, particularly as it relates to queer identity, racial equality, and freedom of expression. In bringing "bad taste" to the walls of galleries and museums, he tugs at the curtain of exclusivity that can divide art from human experience. The carefully selected works featured in this publication are organized around themes including the artist's childhood and identity; Pop culture and the movie business; a satirical consideration of the contemporary art world; and the transgressive power of images. Essays will be provided by Baltimore Museum of Art Senior Curator Kristen Hileman; art historian and activist Jonathan David Katz; critic, curator, and artist Robert Storr; as well as an interview with Waters by photographer Wolfgang Tillmans"--
