50,000 Beds by Chris Doyle
Curator Chris Doyle has gathered forty-five artists to create short videos, each set in a different Connecticut hotel, motel, or inn. Ranching from documentary to fiction, each short work presents a hotel room as a fascinating backdrop for the artist’s imagination. 50,000 Beds offers a unique opportunity to experience the creativity and culture that Connecticut has to offer. This exhibition marks the first collaboration between Artspace, Real Art Ways in Hartford, and the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield.
Exhibition Dates: July 20 to September 15, 2007 – Artspace New Haven. Book designed by Default Company. More information at https://artspacenewhaven.org/exhibitions/50000-beds/

Polychromasia: Selected Paintings by Ficre Ghebreyesus
This retrospective exhibition celebrated the work and life of the late Eritrean-born artist. While his paintings and photographs are in many private collections, this was the first solo exhibition drawn from his vast body of work. Polychromasia, or multicolored, aptly describes Ghebreyesus’s work, which burstsat the seams with chromatic energy, kinetic form, and optical intensity. This exhibition was curated by Key Jo Lee and ran from March 30 to April 24, 2013 at Artspace New Haven, book design by Megan Magnum.

Aliza Shvarts: Off Scene
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. This soft cover book features 13 full color images in 58 pages. Designed by Cayla Lockwood, featuring an introduction by Sarah Fritchey, and essays by Angelique Szymanek and Aliza Shvarts. Printed by GHP Media, Copyright Artspace, 2018. More information can be found at https://artspacenewhaven.org/exhibitions/aliza-shvarts-off-scene/
