Aaron Hughes: TEA
You are invited to sit, sip, and converse over a cup of tea with renowned artist, activist, and Iraq War veteran Aaron Hughes. Hughes’ TEA project opens a safe space to ask questions about one’s relationship to the world: a world filled with dehumanization, war, and destruction; a world filled with beauty, love, and humanity.
TEA is an ongoing dialogue that traverses a variety of landscapes—a Chicago sidewalk, a quaint coffee shop, a cage in Guantanamo Bay, or a motor pool in Iraq. Hughes says, “Tea is part of shared moments that transcend cultural divides and systems of oppression.” This session is open to the general public, with veterans and their loved ones especially encouraged to attend.
This event is part of a series of public programs connected to Not Alone: Exploring Bonds Between and With Members of the Armed Forces (November 9, 2016 – March 4, 2017).
