Pablo Helguera, Nuevo Romancero Nuevomejicano

Monte Card Game with SITE Santa Fe

SITE Santa Fe will present Pablo Helguera’s Nuevo Romancero Nuevomejicano, a card game developed by the artist and inspired by Monte cards. The game is a variation of a gambling game and played with a limited edition deck designed by Helguera, in which he incorporates collages of Spanish Monte cards. The artist adds a twist to the game through his incorporation of period storytelling, original poems, and character studies of historical figures on the back of each card.

Visitors are invited to visit SITE’s booth to play the game with SITE Santa Fe staff daily between 12pm and 3pm.
