Forbidden Representations: An exhibit of lesbian art, 1988

Ottawa: Galerie Saw Video, 1988

Sight Specific was conceived from a desire to see specific lesbian references in visual art. Forbidden Representations is a re-showing of Sight Specific, its title making reference to the traditional exclusion of self-defined lesbian work within dominant art culture, an issue which is foregrounded in this article.
