Jacques de Beaufort: Aesthetics and Surrealism

As we all work through postelection stress, it’s the artist who has the most potential to help interpret and express what the rest of us can fail to capture on our own. In surrealist artist Jacques de Beaufort’s performance piece this Friday, we can experience his interpretation as he presents Macroagression in Red and Blue. De Beaufort says, “The project is a meditation on and visualization of political and cultural tribal identities and the interpsychic violence that accompanies the democratic process."
