This solo exhibition of works by Aliza Shvarts spans the past ten years of the artist’s performance-based practice, ranging from censored materials from Untitled [Senior Thesis] to a new site-specific work. Shvarts first came to national attention in 2008 as a student at Yale University for her undergraduate work Untitled [Senior Thesis], which consisted of a yearlong performance of self-induced miscarriages. Declared a fiction by the university and banned from public exhibition, this unfinished work marks queer and feminist areas of inquiry that she continues to explore: how the body means and matters, how the subject consents and dissents.
