In 2016, Weinberg/Newton Gallery hosted an exhibition entitled Your body is a battleground in support of reproductive rights and a pro-choice Illinois. Installed at our previous location, the building’s management forced the gallery to remove Aleksandra Mir’s text-based artwork Keep Abortion Legal from outward-facing windows along Superior Street in River North. In alternating baby blue and soft pink letters, the statement was deemed unrepresentative of building management and all tenants.

Seven years later the rollback of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court of the United States of America through the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ruling has taken away the constitutional right to an abortion. For Those Without Choice is dedicated to those impacted by laws that manipulate personal decision-making by controlling and criminalizing medical access to reproductive-related procedures.
