205 Hudson Street is pleased to announce an artist talk by John Ahearn as part of MFASO Fall 2017 Lecture Series. Though he may be best known for his life casts of real people in collaboration with artist Rigoberto Torres in his South Bronx neighborhood, John Ahearn has been bringing his artistic works to communities around the world – as well as galleries and museums – since the early 1980′s. The realism of Ahearn’s work is a strength as well as a point of contention by critics. Often described as hopeful, honest, and unpretentious, his works have also stirred a wide range of emotional and political responses and been cause for protest. He was a founding member of Collaborative Projects, Inc. and co-organizer of the “Times Square Show,” 1980.
