This paper argues that that what it means to be a queer artist can be conceptualised through the idea of ‘taste’. More specifically this paper argues that queer art can be said to be characterizable as that which looks to appeal to, to satiate, a queer class taste that I will name ‘impure taste’. Departing from the work of Bourdieu (1984) and Freeman (2010), this paper seeks to demonstrate how conceptualising queer art and artistic practice as that which appeals to impure taste has the advantage of allowing for queer reading practices to be conceptualised as non-mastering and relational.
