Join Lecture on Zoom

A.L. Steiner utilizes constructions of photography, video, installation, collage, collaboration, performance, writing and curatorial work as seductive tropes channeled through the sensibility of a skeptical queer ecofeminist androgyne.

Steiner is co-curator of Ridykeulous, co-founder of Working Artists and the Greater Economy (W.A.G.E.) and collaborates with numerous writers, performers, designers, activists and artists. She is Senior Critic in Film/Video and Assistant Dean for Planning and Relations at Yale University’s School of Art. Steiner is based in Brooklyn, and is featured in permanent collections such as The Brooklyn Museum of Art, Marieluise Hessel Collection of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, The Hammer Museum, Institute of Contemporary Art Miami and The Museum of Modern Art. She is the recipient of the Art Matters Foundation Grant, Tiffany Foundation Award, The American Academy in Berlin Prize, Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grants to Artists Award, The Presidential Visiting Fellowship in Visual Arts at Yale University’s School of Art, and the 2020 Guggenheim Fellowship.

Each semester, weekly visiting artist lectures host noted artists, curators, critics, and historians to share their perspectives, expertise, and current work, and to give insight into contemporary issues facing artists and designers.

All lectures are free and open to the public. Visit our VALS page for more information on the Spring ’21 Lecture Series.
