Ghanaian Artist George Hughes Awes Haverford with Conceptual Performance

April 21, 2010  by: Admin

From The Bi-College News, Bryn Mawr & Haverford Colleges.

George Hughes, a performance artist known for creating art representing the ubiquity of violence and man, presented a piece which appeared to express the same issues of war, violence, and tragedy. As a part of a three-day residency organized by Ruti Talmor, Haverford anthropology professor and Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow, Hughes performed his brief but intense 15-minute piece “Rites of Blue Impediment” to a full house.
