Art Talk with Matthew Mahon
May 29, 2014 | 7–9 pm
2919-C Commerce Street, Dallas, TX 75226
Matthew Mahon’s body of work, currently on view at The Public Trust, was inspired by Philip-Lorca diCorcia’s seminal series Hustlers, featuring carefully staged portraits of male prostitutes. Unlike diCorcia, Mahon photographed women prostitutes and didn’t stage the images. Apparently Mahon lost his virginity “awkwardly” to a prostitute at the age of 14, so hopefully we’re all going to make some real progress with this talk. Moderated by Misty Keasler.
