After closing its doors in 1993, Fashion Moda still remains in the consciousness of many Bronxites and the art world. It was a place where The South Bronx (and The Bronx in general) collided with the downtown art scene when it opened its doors in 1980 in The Hub on 147th and 3rd Avenue.
It was a place where local artists mingled with legends like Keith Haring, who’s works also graced the walls of this iconic place.
Now, 35 years later, Wall Works NY, founded by John “Crash” Matos—and a graffiti artist who was active Fashion Moda— will look back at the importance of this space using the works of old and new artists including Keith Haring.
Artists featured in the exhibition are as follows:
Opening reception for this exhibition is tonight, Wednesday July 15th from 6PM to 9PM at 39 Bruckner Boulevard in Port Morris. Refreshments will be provided by none other than The Bronx Beer Hall!
