Yale Says Its Artistic Prodigy Was Just Engaging In "Performance Art" UPDATE: Yale lied, it's real, says freak

No fetuses were conceived or destroyed in the creation of Aliza Shvarts’s assignment, they assure us, and shame on us for believing that they were:

Ms. Klasky went on to suggest that Yale would not have permitted a project of the sort described in the student newspaper. “Had these acts been real, they would have violated basic ethical standards and raised serious mental and physical health concerns.”

Don’t worry, wingnuts, she was just using menstrual blood and vaseline as an artistic medium. Happens every day. it’s art. You wouldn’t understand.

P.S. Yale’s art department has sure come a long way. Here’s the work of a guy who went there to study art in the 1800’s:


That’s Frederic Remington’s A Dash For The Timber. It’s about macho gay cowboys who are fleeing the persecution of heteronormativity. I believe the medium was oil on canvas, but it may have been menstrual blood on human skin. I’ll have to check on that.

UPDATE, AND BUMP: Miss Thang is doubling down and calling Yale’s press office a bunch of liars:

But Shvarts stood by her project, calling the University’s statement “ultimately inaccurate.”

But Shvarts reiterated Thursday that she repeatedly use a needleless syringe to insert semen into herself. At the end of her menstrual cycle, she took abortifacient herbs to induce bleeding, she said. She said she does not know whether or not she was ever pregnant.

“No one can say with 100-percent certainty that anything in the piece did or did not happen,” Shvarts said, “because the nature of the piece is that it did not consist of certainties.”

Somebody’s lying here. Yale says she swore to three University officials that she didn’t do it, and now she says she did.

I know who I believe. And I hope I’m wrong. (What’s interesting is that, according to the Yale Daily News, even the National Abortion Rights League chimed in to denounce Shvarts’s project. )

UPDATE x2: Weak game. You’re going to have to train harder if you want to compete in the Pathetically Pretentious Collegiate Crazy Art Olympics.
