A. L. Steiner
Through photography, video, installation, and collage, A. L. Steiner creates highly politicized works that address themes of feminism, queer culture, and the environment. Steiner often collaborates with like-minded artists as a member of the electroclash group Chicks on Speed, a founding member of W.A.G.E. (Working Artists and the Greater Economy) and a co-curator of the subversive collaborative Ridykeulous. Among her most well-known works is the film Community Action Center, created with fellow-artist A.K. Burns. The film investigates the hybridization of the personal and the political through a sexually liberal lens. Steiner is a leader within the lesbian-feminist community and a visionary artist encouraging creative minds across a range of disciplines to push the boundaries of daring, often controversial, community engagement and activism.
