About the exhibition

Art made on or after 9/11/01

Organized by Florence Neal and Mercedes Vicente

Kentler International Drawing Space gave Visual Artists, Writers, Musicians, and Performers the opportunity to respond to the tragic events of 9/11/2001. The results promise not to be always soothing but to enhance our ability to come to terms with what has happened. Many artists felt muted, unfocused and at sea. How does what happened affect artists and their work? We listen and watch and wonder what is going to happen next. Artists Respond.

November 9 - 30, 2001

The exhibition traveled to:
University College Art Gallery at Farleigh Dickinson University (Teaneck, NJ), September 11 - 18, 2002
Horace Mann, Bronx River Arts Center (Bronx, NY)
Bronx River Art Center (Bronx, NY)
