Offset print on business card, 2 x 3 inches.

Stefan Eins followed his 3 Mercer Street Store with the South Bronx art space Fashion Moda. John Ahearn’s painted, plaster-cast portraits of South Bronx residents made up one of the defining exhibitions of Fashion Moda’s first years. Ahearn attracted the neighborhood’s attention by working right on the street outside the gallery. The South Bronx Hall of Fame climaxed with a jam-packed closing party. Only four invitations to this historic event are known to still exist.

COLAB’s ever-changing nexus of thirty to sixty artists included many who later achieved individual fame, but the group’s real contribution was the philosophy of creative engagement it advanced through collective, do-it-yourself actions.
