Oxford Art Online (Oxford University Press) on Drawing the Line by Kiss & Tell:
“a group of Canadian artists, operating under the name Kiss & Tell, began in 1990 circulating an exhibition of their lesbian erotica, entitled Drawing the Line. Women viewers were given markers and invited to draw the line at the point where they found the pictures disturbing. Many viewers chose to add comments, so each installation turned into a community debate on the nature of sexuality and its representation. In its acknowledgement of the controversy surrounding sexual identity and imagery, this work may best embody the nature of gay and lesbian art. As a category of historical analysis or lived experience, sexual identity is characterized by change and debate. This dynamism should not be interpreted as a sign of weakness or irrelevance, however. On the contrary, it is because sexual identity is crucial to so many artists and audiences that its visual manifestations arouse such passion and creativity.”
