CRRES Affiliate, Dr. Faye Gleisser was recently interviewed for Artforum, the international flagship contemporary art magazine, about the impact of Black studies and the aesthetic theory of the Black radical tradition on her art historical methodology and pedagogy, and how it is shaping a new generation of scholars who are calling out white supremacist structures of knowledge and gatekeeping in the arts. The interview is currently printed as the cover story of the October issue of Artforum.
An Interview with Dr. Faye R. Gleisser
Meet the Researcher
Dr. Gleisser is a curator and interdisciplinary scholar and teacher who explores constructions of race and gender in contemporary art, with a focus on art produced and displayed in the United States. Faye’s areas of specialization include art and theory of the African Diaspora, theories of abstraction, curatorial activism, and photographic imaginaries of crime, whiteness, and surveillance. Her current book project analyzes how artists’ deployment of guerrilla tactics in art negotiates cinematic and televisual expressions of militancy, policing, and criminal code reform in the United States during the 1970s and 1980s.
