Juan Nepomuceno Carlos Pérez Rulfo Vizcaíno (May 16, 1917 - January 7, 1986) would turn one hundred this May. Best known as Juan Rulfo, he is one of Mexico's foremost writers of the 20th century—without whom Gabriel García Márquez said he could not have imagined writing One Hundred Years of Solitude.
 
To honor him and his work AAA3A prepared an exceptional art show for the month of May, Juan Rulfo Cumple Cien/Juan Rulfo Turns One Hundred, featuring over 50 artists from the Bronx and beyond. To close the exhibit at AAA3A, there will be a celebration organized by award winning theater artist Virginia Grise, “Nada de esto es un sueño: 24 Hours with Juan Rulfo”. The celebration will include food, video screenings, music, live performances and readings of Pedro Paramo and The Burning Plain. The celebration will begin on Saturday May 27 at 4pm and will end on Sunday May 28 at 4pm.
