Ten Years After 9/11
WASHINGTON , D.C. - "Ten Years After 9/11" is an exhibition commemorating the tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001, featuring the work of 39 international artists. The exhibit will be on display at Pepco's Edison Place Art Gallery August 23 through September 30, 2011. Co-curators Helen Frederick and William Dunlap recruited the artists, not specific artworks, which allows "Ten Years After 9/11" to give voice to artists from Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Russia, Ireland, Germany and the United States. Each artist provides their personal perspectives and unique viewpoints to the cultural conversation. According to Frederick, "the exhibition explores how a rupture has been recorded, filtered, transformed and translated into powerful works of art over the past 10 years."
A media preview with Helen Frederick, William Dunlap and artists will take place on August 23 at 10 a.m. in the Pepco Edison Place Gallery. Please RSVP to Anna Wonson at 202-872-3396.
