Silver Action took place in February at the Tate Modern Gallery in London and featured women over the age of 60 discussing activism regarding women's rights: their past participation, the future, and how their views have changed as they matured. The Oakland Projects aimed to engage local California youth in consciousness-raising discussions about police brutality, social injustice, education, and other social issues.
More than young people had conversations in cars about race, class, gender, inequality, and other issues. Observers were asked to listen in on the conversations. The students trained in independent media created a documentary of the performance, which was covered on mainstream news stations. In , Lacy modified her earlier work Three Weeks in May for a new project called Three Weeks in January , which continued the dialogue about rape in Los Angeles. It included presentations, conversations, and a performance called Storying Rape.
Storying Rape: Shame Ends Here grew into another art project produced for the Liverpool Biennial in , which promoted a public conversation in the English city about rape violence, education, and prevention. Sackler Center for Feminist Art , participants discussed gender issues while passersbys listened in. The organization works to increase communication between women and connect the public with forms of women-based media. Lacy is the editor of Mapping the Terrain: New Genre Public Art , an anthology of essays about the impact of performance art in public spaces.
Lacy has consistently written about her work: planning, describing, and analyzing it; advocating socially engaged art practices; theorizing the relationship between art and social intervention; and questioning the boundaries separating high art from popular participation. Lacy has held several positions at academic institutions focusing on the arts.

The next year she followed Ms. Chicago to the newly established California Institute of the Arts and began studying with Allan Kaprow , the father of the Happening. He became her mentor.
Prompted by Ms. Lacy, wearing fake teeth and mimicking the cadences of Julia Child, grapples with a bloody lamb carcass. Although in the past critics tended to view her projects as political activism, rather than conceptual art, today the tide has turned.
As a result, young curators and artists alike are drawn to her work. Lacy has educated many of them, teaching performance art throughout the country. She is now founding director of the graduate public practice program at the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. Schimmel said.
