Presenting Pablo Helguera and Andrea Polli

"Helguera has literally re-created Camillo's "Memory Theater", a
lifelong,  never-finalized project in which images and texts placed
strategically within a structure that represents the seven pillars of
Solomon's House of Wisdom together become a microcosm and representation
for the universe." Victoria Noorthoorn, Assistant Curator of
Contemporary Exhibitions at the Drawing Center, New York

Multi-disciplinary visual artist  Pablo Helguera is working with
students in Andrea Polli's Web Design Projects course on the actual
creation of a web based Memory Theater. Helguera and Polli will present
their work in the context of the Memory Theater, drawing on the
integration of representation with knowledge, storage and memory
systems, the art of memory, the nature of images, and time as part of
the knowledge process.

Helguera's work  appropriates museographic techniques, performance art,
literature, history, installation and new media, reflecting on various
cultural concerns and issues of art interpretation. He has exhibited
internationally in Eastern and Western Europe, Latin America and
throughout the United States. He is the Senior Education Program
Manager at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, where he develops and
implements more than 100 public programs a year.

Andrea Polli is an interactive media artist and new Associate Professor
of Film and Media at Hunter College. She has exhibited and lectured
nationally and internationally.  A retrospective article about her work
from 1991-1998,  Virtual Space and the Construction of Memory, is
published in the Spring 98 issue of The Leonardo Journal.
