The Christening: Ali Fitzgerald and Cruz Ortiz
Risa Puleo's concept for her new gallery The Donkey Show and the paintings by Ali Fitzgerald in it are provocative in a way that only the strongest incitements to thought can be
Arts Review  May 19, 2006, by Nikki Moore
"...While I fully support the fact that neither art reviews nor art shows come with PG, PG-13, and NC-17 ratings, I do want to warn you that the Donkey Show and this review are not for the faint of heart. Opened by recent Bard graduate Risa Puleo, the Donkey Show is a metaphor for exactly what you think it is: the U.S./Mexico border phenomenon that smacks squarely of bestiality, theatrical production, voyeurism, and power plays of all kinds..."

So You Think You Can Paint?
Reality TV-style art competition returns for Season Two
Arts Story  November 18, 2011, by Robert Faires
"...Last year's event drew 68 submissions, from which judges Sterling Allen (artist, Okay Mountain), Rachel Koper (program director, Women & Their Work), and Risa Puleo (assistant curator, Blanton Museum of Art) selected Chloé Yingst as the winner. The Texas State University art student was showered with gift certificates to art-related businesses, guest passes and memberships to area museums, and the big prize: her own solo exhibit at Pump Project Art Complex...."

Artists who responded to an open call have their work reviewed by a panel consisting of Okay Mountain artist Sterling Allen, Women and Their Work Program Director Rachel Koper, and Blanton Museum of Art assistant curator Risa Puleo before a public audience..."

State of Wonderment
The Texas Biennial's first outside curator describes what he saw in Lone Star art
Arts Story  March 6, 2009, by Andrew Long
"...There are many hooks that will surprise viewers who are unaccustomed to looking at contemporary art – especially the accessibility of the seven public artworks, like Bill Davenport's giant mushrooms and Buster Graybill's giant catfish. [The outdoor projects were co-curated with the Blanton Museum of Art's Risa Puleo.]..."

EVR: e-flux video rental
Arthouse's EVR: e-flux video rental offers a chance not only to see some very interesting, hard-to-find pieces of film and video art, but also to participate in a study of our own patterns of communication
Arts Review  December 22, 2006, by Nikki Moore
"...An interesting assortment of apparently unrelated choices, to be sure … which is something that might initially be said of the e-flux video rental (EVR) project itself, since its video holdings snowball from city to city as area curators add their favorite and often obscure pieces of video art to the EVR mix. But while it may seem random to have Austin curators such as Risa Puleo and Annette Carlozzi contribute any films they choose to the project as part of its two-month stay at Arthouse, it does in fact serve a real purpose: EVR was conceived by e-flux as a collaborative enterprise, and contributions from every site where it's stationed broaden the number of participants in the project, just as the movement of sites and librarylike policy of "renting" the videos – in short, it's free – ensures an ever-expanding audience of viewers..."

'Chloé Yingst: Missing'
The artist's first solo show offers a series of ethereal portraits rooted in memory
Arts Review  February 18, 2011, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...This is the artist's first solo show, a position won by taking first place in the Eyes Got It! open-call competition, judged by Okay Mountain's Sterling Allen, Women & Their Work's Rachel Koper, and Risa Puleo of the Blanton Museum of Art, in November last year. This initial offering provides a background, you could imagine, a past for the future of works yet to come from Yingst..."

Arts Story  September 24, 2010, by Robert Faires

Culture Flash!
The Art Palace glows in the 'Times,' and Dan Dietz gets a hearing at the Kennedy Center
Arts Column  September 1, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...And she found some of it in Arturo Palacios' gallery on East Cesar Chavez while being walked through the "Summer Fling" exhibit by the show's curator/painter/aspiring gunslinger, Ali Fitzgerald, who earns a comparison to Calamity Jane from the journalist. Curator Risa Puleo, artists Rebecca Ward and Christa Palazzolo, screenwriter/photographer Bill Wittliff, and architect David Heymann also make appearances in the feature, which has that familiar feel of so many "I discovered Austin" stories but is still a fun read...."

Meet n' Greet
We attend Pride and Queerbomb meetings! And tell you about it!
DAILY The Gay Place  May 15, 2011, by Andy Campbell
"...At this meeting ideas were bandied about, getting the group to come to a kind of informal consensus about the role and number of Marshas (parade helpers) needed. Other community members, Risa "Fierce Femme" Puleo, Matt "Shayna Punim" Korn, and Beth "The Tatted Brat" Schindler all helped lead discussion.* Silky "Sass-quatch" Shoemaker reiterated the DIY soul of Queerbomb, which provoked an extended discussion about the nature of the event – on which no formal consensus was reached...."
