Art major Aliza Shvarts '08 wants to make a statement
Beginning next Tuesday, Shvarts will be displaying her senior art project, a documentation of a nine-month process during which she artificially inseminated herself "as often as possible" while periodically taking abortifacient drugs to induce miscarriages. Her exhibition will feature video recordings of these forced miscarriages as well as preserved collections of the blood from the process.
A controversial artist accused of chaining up an emaciated stray dog and starving it to death 'in the name of art' has sparked an international outcry.
Guillermo Vargas has been asked to represent his country in a major show – prompting 2million people to sign an online petition calling for him to be banned from the exhibition.
Campaigners fear Vargas may stage a similar stunt to that of 2007 when a dog named Natividad featured in an exhibition at the Codice Gallery in Managua, Nicaragua.
The dog was left on a lead tantalisingly close to a bowl of food and water while more than a hundred pieces of crack coc aine were set alight in an incense burner.
Next to him the words 'you are what you read' were spelled out in dog biscuits.
However, the World Society for the Protection of Animals said is has received assurances from the organisers of the Visual Arts Biennale in Honduras that any exhibit that is cruel to animals will not be tolerated

The additional information gleaned from googling does nothing to lessen my outrage.
We are a cruel self-centred race, something the artist was, I believe, trying to convey.
