Creative Time

New Book
by Pablo Helguera

November 20th, 2012

2012 Creative Time Summit participant Pablo Helguera, artist and MoMA’s Director of Adult and Academic Programs, is one of the most engaging and provocative voices in the world of contemporary art. We can’t wait to read Pablo’s just-published book, Art Scenes: The Social Scripts of the Art World, available on Amazon. In it, he divorces the sociology of contemporary art from the market—the context in which it is traditionally viewed. Instead, he examines how art makes us perform in ways both calculated and casual, “ranging from conversations and subtle social interactions to formal presentations that can be academic or simply promotional,” and how in doing so we shape the art world.

Congratulations, Pablo!
