DESCRIPTION

Helguera’s installation, at the new ASU Art Museum location at the Brickyard, takes the form of an itinerant Spanish-language bookstore comprised of over 12,000 used books on virtually every subject. The installation recreates the unique intellectually and culturally rich environment of a secondhand bookstore and questions how Spanish is integrated into the broader cultural life of Arizona.
 
From March 1 – June 21, an accompanying exhibition of new work by Helguera will be on view in the Kresge Gallery at the ASU Art Museum.
