Sue Tate

Pauline Boty (1938-66), colleague of David Hockney and Peter Blake, was one of the few women artists to engage with Pop Art. She found a visual language to picture a female erotic imagination despite working within a genre that has been castigated for objectifying and reifying the sexual woman. She posed naked with her own work and performed a knowingly sexualised, popular culture construction of artistic identity. In so doing, she aimed to collapse the binary opposition between “sexual woman” and “serious artist.” This transgressive and innovatory practice had no discursive resonance at the time and has, until recently, been marginalised or excluded from both mainstream Pop and feminist art history. Second wave feminist art theory only validated women’s work that subverted mass cultural imagery but this imperative to subvert means a denial of the real pleasures experienced by women, leaving them as tenants in bodies that signify only sexuality for men. Changed discursive and historical circumstances now allow a re-evaluation of feminist understandings. Boty’s practice provides a model of how the erotic body might be re-occupied that has great relevance to current debates.

The Bible in/and Popular Culture

A Creative Encounter

Series:

Edited by Philip Culbertson and Elaine Wainwright

In popular culture, the Bible is generally associated with films: The Passion of the Christ, The Ten Commandments, Jesus of Montreal, and many others. Less attention has been given to the relationship between the Bible and other popular media such as hip-hop, reggae, rock, and country and western music; popular and graphic novels; animated television series; and apocalyptic fantasy. This collection of essays explores a range of media and the way the Bible features in them, applying various hermeneutical approaches, engaging with critical theory, and providing conceptual resources and examples of how the Bible reads popular culture—and how popular culture reads the Bible. This useful resource will be of interest for both biblical and cultural studies. The contributors are Elaine M. Wainwright, Michael Gilmour, Mark McEntire, Dan W. Clanton Jr., Philip Culbertson, Jim Perkinson, Noel Leo Erskine, Tex Sample, Roland Boer, Terry Ray Clark, Steve Taylor, Tina Pippin, Laura Copier, Jaap Kooijman, Caroline Vander Stichele, and Erin Runions.
