      Tuesday, November 16, 2021 at 7:00 PM until 8:00 PMEastern Standard Time

      In this Information Session, Assistant Director of Performing Arts Admissions Sam Byron will host an introduction to the innovative MA Arts Management & Entrepreneurship program at The New School's College of Performing Arts in a conversation with faculty member Pablo Helguera.

      Participants will learn about the program, the application and audition process, and will hear firsthand how the College of Performing Arts considers the whole human artist in everything it does. There will be a brief opportunity for Q&A following the presentation.

      Pablo Helguera (b. Mexico City, 1971) is a New York based artist working with installation, sculpture, photography, drawing, socially engaged art and performance. Helguera’s work incorporates pedagogy, sociology and theater and literary strategies. His project, “The School of Panamerican Unrest”, a nomadic think-tank that physically crossed the continent by car from Anchorage, Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, making 40 stops in between and covering almost 20,000 miles, it is considered one of the most extensive public art projects on record as well as a pioneering work of socially engaged art.

      Helguera has worked since 1991 in a variety of contemporary art museums, most recently as head of public programs at the Education department of the Guggenheim Museum in New York (1998-2005). From 2007 until his appointment at the New School, he was the Director of Adult and Academic programs at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. He has organized more than 1000 public events in conjunction with nearly 100 exhibitions. In 2010 he was appointed pedagogical curator of the 8th Mercosul Biennial in Porto Alegre, Brazil, which took place in September, 2011.

      Helguera is a Guggenheim Fellow and has received the Creative Capital, and holds a PhD from Kingston University, London, and an honorary PhD from the Kansas Art Institute.

      Pablo Helguera has exhibited and performed individually in many museums and biennials around the world. He is the author of several books including Education for Socially Engaged Art (2011), The Parable Conference (2014) and An Atlas of Commonplaces (2015)
