Imaging Desire, Mary Kelly's long-awaited collection of writings from1976 to 1995, asks fundamental questions about the analysis of current practices inart and makes rigorous arguments for a criticism informed by semiotics, psychoanalysis, and feminism. Few artists have made such a strong contribution tocritical discourse and art as Mary Kelly, who for more than twenty years has pushedthe boundaries of the visual, the textual, the sexual, and the political in herwriting and her art.Imaging Desire contains all the seminal texts and revealscrucial points of intersection between written and visual expression in a careerknown for its intertextual, interdiscursive features. Here the visible, the oral, the gestural, and the readable continually converge to frame questions about thebody in ways that redefine its cultural and visual status, and to explore therelation between images and desire.
