Drawn from autobiographical materials and diaries, the project investigates aspects of the self as a portal to larger issues to which we are all connected, including our past personal histories, shared cultural contexts, education, work and social.

About the Artist
Pablo Helguera (born April 25, 1971, Mexico City) is an artist, performer, author, and educator. From 2007 to 2020 he was Director of Adult and Academic Programs at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. He currently is an Assistant Professor at the College of Performing Arts at the New School.

Following his BFA degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and employment with the Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago, Helguera relocated to New York on the invitation of the Guggenheim Museum to join the Department of Education where he remained for eight years while beginning his career as an exhibiting artist. In 2012, Helguera received a PhD degree from Kingston University in London, and refined his role as an educator with engagement by the Museum of Modern Art.
