Cross Gender/Cross Genre by Mike Kelley

“I would like to say a few words about the aesthetic of the period from the mid-60s to the mid-70s, in regards to images of gender confusion.”

Mike Kelley delivered this paper—“Cross Gender/Cross Genre”—on September 26, 1999, as part of “Re-Make/Re-Model: Secret Histories of Art, Pop, Life, and the Avantgarde,” a panel presented at the Steirischer Herbst festival in Graz, Austria.
