This Veterans Day, Iraqi War veteran and artist Aaron Hughes hosts Tea, a ceremony and discussion that explores memories of war, detention, dehumanization, and love. When someone sits, sips, and reflects over a cup of tea there is space to ask questions about one’s relationship to the world—a world that’s filled with dehumanization, war, and destruction; a world that’s filled with moments of beauty, love, and humanity. Please join us to sit, reflect, share, and sip tea together.
This program is presented as part of Artists Experiment, in collaboration with Michael Rakowitz.
