Pablo Helguera (2005 Visual Arts) celebrates the publication of an anthology of essays and documentation from his Creative Capital-supported project The School of Panamerican Unrest with a book launch at the Cue Art Foundation in New York on October 11 at 6:30pm. The event will include a discussion with Helguera and co-editor Sarah Demeuse, along with contributors Gale Allen, Jennifer Flores Sternad, Sofía Olascoaga and Adetty Pérez Miles.

In 2006, Helguera drove with a portable schoolhouse from Anchorage, Alaska to Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, exploring the historical ideals of Pan-Americanism. Stopping in more than 27 cities and covering nearly 20,000 miles, the School of Panamerican Unrest project included the presentation of panel discussions, workshops, town hall meetings and civic ceremonies. Five years after that journey, this bilingual anthology, published by Jorge Pinto Books, gathers a group of critical essays and documentary materials of this pedagogical and public art experiment.
