I've been feeling just a little bit guilty about showing so many [almost]cum shots on this site lately, so I was delighted to finally make it to the excellently outrageous/outrageously excellent show, "Ridykeulous", curated by Nicole Eisenman and A.L. Steiner at Participant. But ouch! It was the last day. My answer to the challenge that represents for my readers, or viewers, was to put up as many images as I could muster, giving them a chance to float into the ether forever.

The show is based on the two women's publication of the same name, making both, in the words of the press release, very much the same "collaborative effort on the part of the two curators to subvert the languages, both theoretical and visual, which are commonly used to define Feminist or Lesbian art."

It sure worked for me!

And how do we get to see more of these wonderful artists?
