The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation is pleased to present The Schoolhouse and the Bus: Mobility, Pedagogy and Engagement, an exhibition pairing, for the first time, work by two leading artists of the social practice movement, Pablo Helguera and Suzanne Lacy. On view at The 8th Floor from February 9 through May 12, 2018, The Schoolhouse and the Bus highlights a touchstone work by each of the artists executed in the Americas but never shown in their entirety in the United States – Helguera’s School of Panamerican Unrest (2006) and Lacy’s Skin of Memory (1999), a collaboration with Pilar Riaño-Alcalá. Comprised of installation, collage, sculpture, ephemera, photography, video, as well as archival documentation, this exhibition serves to highlight overlapping themes in their works, which include immigration, pedagogy, violence, memory, and community organizing. The forthcoming publication The Schoolhouse and the Bus: Mobility, Pedagogy and Engagement, to be released later this spring, will feature interviews with the artists and key collaborators, as well as essays by Shannon Jackson, and the exhibition’s co-curators Elyse A. Gonzales and Sara Reisman.
