This spring, artist Pablo Helguera is putting the Spanish language back on the shelf, with the interactive exhibition, “Librería Donceles.” Having collected 12,000 Spanish language books ranging in every topic from art, poetry, and history to medicine, politics, and children’s literature, Helguera will create a temporary used book store that doesn’t just encourage visitors to explore the Spanish culture but also to think about how that culture is incorporated into modern life in Arizona.
This show will run concurrently with “Pablo Helguera: Chrestomathy,” on view Friday, March 21, through Saturday, June 21,at ASU’s newly reloacted Ceramics Research Center, 699 South Mill Avenue in Tempe. “Pablo Helguera: Librería Donceles” will be on view March 21 through Saturday, June 28, at Combine Studios Gallery, 821 North Third Street.
