A.L. Steiner | VISITING FACULTY
A.L. Steiner uses constructions of photography, video, installation, collaboration, performance, writing and curatorial work as seductive tropes channeled through the sensibility of a cynical queer eco-feminist androgyne.  She's a collective member of Chicks on Speed, the co-curator of Ridykeulous, a co-founding member of Working Artists and the Greater Economy (W.A.G.E.), and collaborates with numerous visual and performing artists.
