Born in New York, John Ahearn works with community groups whose access to fine art and museum culture has been limited. During the 1980s and 1990s, Ahearn executed outdoor murals in New York and collaborated on public projects in North America and Europe. He participated in the Artist’s Residency Programme at IMMA in 1994. From 2000 he has worked in Taiwan and Brazil.
To ensure the health and safety of the public, IMMA’s galleries will be closed from the evening of Friday 18 September until Saturday 10 October 2020. The grounds of IMMA and the RHK will remain open. Thank you for your cooperation.
