This 90-minute program of recent and newly commissioned pieces of video art surveys several broad categories of work, including artists performing reckless or seemingly dangerous actions on camera, using guerilla tactics to stage public interventions that place them in physical or legal jeopardy, and employing explosive visual and narrative styles to portray social recklessness in both fictional and documentary modes.

"Reckless Behavior" features works by Cathy Begien, Nao Bustamante, Jeff Cain, Patty Chang, Tom Dale, Harrell Fletcher, Adam Frelin, Kate Gilmore, Mike Long and Jesse Sugarmann, Laurel Nakadate, and Joe Sola. The program also premieres newly commissioned works by Juneau/Projects and Joanne Jones and by Ryan Trecartin.
