Day-long programme featuring an artist talk by Pablo Helguera.
The New York-based artist, academic, educator, and writer, as well as a sometime cartoonist, composer, and opera singer, delves into his recent and past participatory projects to consider the ‘library as form’ in his talk, The Open Book. Helguera, whose work spans history, pedagogy, sociolinguistics, and anthropology through lectures, museum displays, performances, and written fiction, has exhibited and performed internationally.
AAA will also host a brunch, and the reception for Excessive Enthusiasm: Ha Bik Chuen and the Archive as Practice, an exhibition in the AAA library stemming from our research into the archive of Hong Kong-based artist Ha Bik Chuen (1925-2009).
