FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 9th, 2021
Monira Foundation Present:
On September 11, 2021, a group of artists who were children in proximity to the World Trade Center twenty years ago will present “Holding Time” at 412 West 13th St. The show
examines the psychical afterlife of 9/11 as it has been mediated, consciously and unconsciously, in works that participants made in the intervening period, ranging from photographs taken on 9/11/01 to sculpture made in recent years. The self-organized show aims to challenge the bellicose narratives proffered by adults around 9/11, offering instead moments of openendedness and intimacy in relation to events that are, in many ways, unfinished.
As part of the show, the group asks visitors to bring an object that shows how they have made sense of 9/11 to help build a photographic public counter-archive of the event.
With work by:
Jon De Cola
David Lê and Lila Babb
Ceci, Mariana and Bruno Smith
