Led by Pablo Helguera and other guest artists in the site of one of the oldest free trade schools in this country, this program will include a roundtable discussion amongst socially engaged artists reflecting on current and historical notions of an open society and of the social role of the artist today. The program will initiate with a performative reading of texts related to this subject at the John M. Mossman Lock Collection, a historic museum display outlining the history of locksmithing.
