With Australian artist Leigh Bowery (1961–1994), this richly illustrated catalog devotes itself to one of the most colorful border-crossers of the London and New York club, fashion, and art scenes of the 1980s and 1990s. Bowery made his sexuality a means of aesthetic expression, and he consciously used his own body in excessive abundance as an artistic media.
Leigh Bowery’s influence reached through the fashion, club, and art worlds to impact, amongst others, Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Boy George, John Galliano, the Scissor Sisters, and David LaChapelle. He also inspired some of Lucian Freud’s most fascinating nude paintings.
