    Art historian and curator Faye Gleisser is the author of Risk Work: Making Art and Guerrilla Tactics in Punitive America, 1967–1987, which describes how artists came to use guerrilla tactics in performance and conceptual art, maneuvering in response to policing, racism, and surveillance. For this talk, Gleisser draws on her research beyond the final scope of her recent book and leans into the orbit of Ghislaine Leung’s exhibition. Shifting her frame of reference toward the present, she continues to explore risk-taking and vulnerability in artistic practices.
