An Atlas of Commonplaces
a notebook for artists
Jorge Pinto Books, NY 2016
Join us in a performative reading of Pablo Helguera’s new book, An Atlas of Commonplaces, with excerpts read by Pablo Helguera and Laura Lona
Drawing on the rich literary tradition of the aphorism, Pablo Helguera takes his anthropological look at the art world to present a group of observations about contemporary art practice. While this is a book directed to visual artists, the reflections of An Atlas of Commonplaces provide a window to current issue around art making for art professionals and the general public alike.
Pablo Helguera (Mexico City, 1971) is a visual artist living in New York. He is the author of many books including The Parable Conference, (2014), Education for Socially Engaged Art (2011) and Art Scenes: The Social Scripts of the Art World 2012).
