Ernesto Pujol Talks With the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage

Performance artist and social choreographer Ernesto Pujol (AP Faculty) is known for creating site-specific, durational performances. He spoke with the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage about how he thinks this extended passage of time affects our experience of an artwork. “It fights our cult of speed,” he says. “To do something over a span of time…puts us in another frame of mind and materiality. It immediately throws us into experiencing, rather than consuming.”
