A. L. Steiner Bio
About The Artist
A.L. Steiner, who has been described as "a skeptical queer ecofeminist androgyne hustling as a cultural worker in a late-capitalistic economy," creates politically charged, provocative photographs, videos, and collages. Often drawing on feminist and queer themes, she is perhaps best known for her 69 minute "sociosexual" film, Community Action Center, made in collaboration with artist A.K. Burns. Inspired by what the artist describes as "gay porn-romance-liberation films" from the 1960s and '70s, the film explores the intersections between the personal and the political.
In addition to her individual art practice, Steiner is involved with several collaborative activities, including the band Chicks on Speed, the curatorial partnership Ridykeulous (with painter Nicole Eisenman), and the organization WAGE (Working Artists in the Greater Economy), which she co-founded. Her work has been exhibited at venues including the Tate Modern, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Sofia, the New Museum, MoMA PS1, and the Centre Pompidou.
