While you sample Grit-Off entries, Ted Kuhn’s performance of his
provocative original work Keep Hope Alive will be ongoing.
The work addresses the reflexive relationship
between the HOPE Scholarship & the Georgia Lottery.
Just how Kuhn does it will remain a mystery until you see it!
About Keep Hope Alive:
Ted Kuhn created this original performance art piece for the Southern
exhibit. His piece is quite timely, as a crisis in the funding of the
scholarship program has been much in the news. Kuhn, currently a student at the UGA Lamar Dodd School of Art, is a recipient of a Hope Scholarship. Says Lauren Williamson, Assistant Curator for Southern, “This is sure to be a performance that people will be discussing for some time to come. When Kuhn’s proposal came in we were struck by the insightful commentary the performance embodies—he has really done his research.” The remains from the performance will remain in the gallery following the event for the duration of the exhibition.
