Artists Nicole Eisenman and A.L. Steiner form the curatorial initiative Ridykeulous (joined here by guest-dyke Sam Roeck) Founded in 2005, Ridykeulous mounts exhibitions and events primarily concerned with queer and feminist art. Using humor to critique the art world as well as culture at large, Ridykeulous often reinvents language to reflect their sensibilities and concerns as well as writes angry letters and diatribes across various media.
