The Art and Art History Department is pleased to present artist, activist and educator Pablo Helguera as part of the Office of Academic Affairs Conversations on Diversity and Social Justice Series.
Mr. Helguera is a dynamic speaker and a leading thinker, practitioner, and advocate in the field of socially engaged art. His works have been exhibited and performed in major museums, galleries and public art spaces throughout the world. Most notably, his mobile public art project, The School of Panamerican Unrest, a “nomadic think-tank” that traveled 20,000 miles from Alaska to Tierra Del Fuego. His many awards include the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, 2008, Creative Capital Grant, 2005, and project grants from Franklin Furnace, and Art Matters.   
In addition to his visual and performance-based work, Helguera has published several books that range from the theoretical text, Education for Socially Engaged Art, to a satire of the art world, The Pablo Helguera Manual of Contemporary Art Style.
