New York-based performance artist Pablo Helguera corresponded with audience members in advance of his show—and asked them to trust him—for Brooklyn Bred 2, a series curated by Franklin Furnace Archive founder and director Martha Wilson. Set at a mysterious gala event hosted by a dozen people all named Pablo Helguera, The Parable Conference asks uncomfortable questions about the roles of art, intimacy and performance in today's society. The Parable Conference was presented as part of the BAM Next Wave Festival in October 2014, and the piece's text has since been published as a book.
