Fellowship Workshops are designed for applicants to our ABOG Fellowship for Socially Engaged Art and include hands-on, interactive approaches to helping artists with their proposals. This workshop will begin with a short presentation by ABOG Fellow Pablo Helguera, followed by small group discussions about what ABOG’s selection criteria are and how artists can best apply them, each led by an ABOG staffer. ABOG will also facilitate a review process for artists to receive feedback from their peers in advance of submitting their applications.
About Pablo Helguera
ABOG Fellow Pablo Helguera’s work takes a pedagogic approach to exploring the relationship between art and language, as well as the social dynamics of contemporary art in our daily lives. His School of Panamerican Unrest, a nomadic think tank facilitating discussions, screenings, performances and partnerships has been touring for over a decade and is one of the most far-reaching and enduring public art projects on record, crossing over 20,000 miles through 40 U.S. states. In addition to his art and music practice, Helguera is currently the Director of Adult and Academic Programs at MoMA. His ABOG Fellowship will support the installation of Librería Donceles, a non-profit itinerant bookstore of￼￼ twenty thousand used Spanish-language books and accompanying programming, in Red Hook, Brooklyn in 2015.
