Aaron Hughes

Aaron Hughes is an artist, curator, organizer, teacher, anti-war activist, and Iraq War veteran. He works collaboratively in diverse spaces and media to create meaning out of personal and collective trauma, deconstruct and transform systems of oppression, and seek liberation. Working through an interdisciplinary practice rooted in drawing and printmaking, Hughes develops projects that deconstruct militarism and related institutions of dehumanization. These projects often utilize popular research strategies, experiment with forms of direct democracy, and operate in solidarity with the people most impacted by structural violence.

In addition to his work with Justseeds, Hughes works with a range of art and activist projects including About Face: Veterans Against the War (formerly Iraq Veterans Against the War), Warrior Writers, emerging Veteran Art Movement, and Prison + Neighborhood Arts/Education Project.
