Ariadne Randall

Ariadne Randall is an American artist, composer, and writer based in Vienna, Austria. She holds degrees in classical composition and contemporary art from UCLA and Bard MFA, and straddles the worlds of academia and DIY. Practicing worldbuilding, she creates spaces for imagination in sound, language, and image. In her work, underground queer raves coexist with Medieval polyphony, Foucault with the leather he wore, alongside Zen koans, Low Theory, postwar American experimentalism, contemporary digital culture, and poetry.

She is documenting her gender transition through a trilogy of performance works; the first, Reverse Cowgirl Beta, premiered at Brut, Vienna in 2023; the second will feature McKenzie Wark.
