Meital Yaniv (b. 1984, Tel-Aviv, Israel) is a Los Angeles based interdisciplinary artist whose practice embodies language, performance, and video. Yaniv’s labor weaves and merges the personal and the political to find the common thread in disparate struggles, connecting ideas, bodies, and forms of resistance. Since 2015, Yaniv has been organizing intimate reading events with the aim of conceiving alternative communities where vulnerability holds us all accountable. Her book, Spectrum for an Untouchable, was published in October 2016. Yaniv holds an MFA from California Institute of the Arts and a BFA from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design.
