Pablo Helguera is a New York based artist working with installation, sculpture, photography,drawing, socially engaged art and performance. Helguera’s work focuses in a variety of topicsranging from history, pedagogy, sociolinguistics, ethnography, memory and the absurd, informats that are widely varied including the lecture, museum display strategies, musicalperformances and written fiction.His work as an educator has usually intersected his interest as an artist, making his workoften reflects on issues of interpretation, dialogue, and the role of contemporary culture in aglobal reality. This intersection is best exemplified in his project, “The School of PanamericanUnrest”, a nomadic think-tank that physically crossed the continent by car from Anchorage,Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, making 40 stops in between. Covering almost 20,000 miles, it isconsidered one of the most extensive public art projects on record as well as a pioneeringwork for the new generation of artworks regarded under the area of socially engaged art.


The project is supported by the City of Oslo, Agency for Cultural Affairs and Arts Council Norway.
