On the Future of Art by Pablo Helguera

Wednesday, June 18, 2014 @ 6:30 pm

Multidisciplinary artist Pablo Helguera presents a reprise of the 1969 lecture series On the Future of Art, organized by former Guggenheim curator Edward Fry, considering how our ideas about art are transformed through geography, time, translation, and personal experience. As part of the exhibition Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today, Helguera interweaves the discussions from the 1969 talks with other stories, including the life of longtime Guggenheim archivist Ward Jackson and his investigation into the Chuquicamata mine owned by the Guggenheim brothers in northern Chile.
