Club Americano

(Saturday) (Sunday)

Artist and educator Pablo Helguera cordially invites you to “Club Americano”

Mexican-born, New York-based Helguera (born 1971) presents an intimate one-room exhibition and shared space that explores the historic foundations and contemporary definitions of American identity. His project takes aesthetic inspiration from 19th-century university clubs and gentlemen’s lounges—exclusive gathering spaces for elite groups of one gender and race—but breaks with tradition by welcoming people of all backgrounds to lounge, read, host community events, and view performances. “Club Americano” offers visitors a seat at a 19th-century dining table, surrounded by paintings and decorative arts from the Museum’s world-renowned collections. Selected by Helguera in collaboration with MFA curators, the artworks serve as subjects for After Dinner Speech performances that evoke the stories contained within them through a present-day lens.
