Drawn to subject matter that comments on current events and demands social change, artist Andres Serrano spent months with the homeless of New York City to create his most recent series “Residents of New York” which is made up of large scale portrait photographs. Until June 16, the work will be publicly displayed in locations around Washington Square, the subway station at West 4th Street and on LaGuardia Place, Judson Memorial Church, and numerous public phone booths throughout Manhattan.

Andres Serrano is extremely well known yet underappreciated. The majority of people who are aware of his work are only familiar with his publicity stunt "Piss Christ," where he soaked a crucifix of Jesus in urine. While this may seem vile, Serrano is interested in what contemporary religion and sexuality look like. Many may claim this statement, but none have explored it in such an arduous and disturbing manner as Serrano.
