Lauren Maggart was born in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, and was raised in Huntsville, Alabama. She will graduate in May 2011 from Sewanee: The University of The South, with a degree in studio art and minors in Women’s Studies and International and Global Studies. Her background in gender studies has become the platform for most of her work. She spent Summer 2010 researching feminist artists from 1960-1970 and creating a short video series through a Fund For Innovative Teaching and Learning scholarship. This experience acts as the backbone for her current body of work, This is Not Your Body, which “considers the cultural stipulations placed on women to follow prescribed gender guidelines. This is examined through the critique of the use of the male gaze as a form of objectification as well as the prevalence of the gender binary.” – Maggart
