Join DiverseWorks Executive Director & Chief Curator Xandra Eden for a tour and discussion of the exhibition, Pablo Helguera: The Fable Is to Be Retold. 

Conceptual artist Pablo Helguera combines performance, visual art, community outreach and political activism to examine the social and cultural function of conventional teaching and memory systems. For his exhibition at DiverseWorks, Helguera uses fables to examine forms of visual and linguistic communication (or miscommunication) and understanding — particularly between children and adults and the empowered vs. the marginalized. New installation and video work, as well as a conceptual sculpture and a series of collages titled, Arlington Heights, are included in his first solo exhibition in Houston.
