3. Matthew Geller, FF Alumn, in Microviews, an Archive of WTC Daily Life, at The Municipal Art Society, September 18 through October 10

From 1997-2001, nearly 140 artists transformed temporarily vacant space in Tower One of the World Trade Center donated by the Port Authority of NY and NJ into art studios through the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's residency programs. Matthew Geller is one of the artists included in Microviews, a unique exhibition that presents the building's architecture and environs as documented by the artists during their residencies. Viewers are invited to sift through this archive of daily life at the World Trade Center, including photographs, drawings, video and sound recordings of public areas, office suites, hallways, and infrastructure. Microviews aims to explore the processes of reconstruction and memory, to offer a counterpoint to the iconic public images of the Twin Towers that emerged last fall and to evaluate our notions of place through everyday documents.

Organized by Christopher K. Ho and Stephen Apicella-Hitchcock with Moukhtar Kocache and Erin Donnelly of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. LMCC's Visual and Media Arts Programs are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. For more information, visit www.lmcc.net or www.mas.org

10. UNFORGETTABLE - Artists proposals for a memorial for 9-11 at Chelsea Studio Gallery, September 5-28

Statement from curator/organizer: Judy Collischan
This exhibition was provoked by the fact that there has been little or no involvement of the art community with the events of September 11, 2001. There has been no call and no invitations from governmental officials and few responses from museums, galleries or artists. A cataclysmic event took place in New York City, the center of the world, and hardly any connections have been made between authority and art.

From its beginnings, our history has been told that through great works of art, be they sculpture, painting, architecture or a combination. Milestone occurrences have been related and recognized through art. These objects and/or structures are narrative, dedicatory and triumphal--monumental and commemorative.

There is talk of a remembrance, but this comes from the mayor, the governor, real estate developers, families, police and fire departments, etc. Where is art in all of this? Where are the calls for proposals? Is it lack of interest? Is it apathy? Is it fear or mistrust of contemporary art? Is our art up to the task? Has art backed itself into such an esoteric and/or commercial corner that it can no longer be relevant to events in today's world?

Answers that have been given include: too soon, we need time to react, we are waiting to see what happens, there is no mechanism in place, yet, etc. That's odd. In the blink of an eye, politicians and real estate developers were making plans. Without hesitation, they acted immediately.

This exhibition, then addresses a need one of art's involvement with an event in its time. Forty artists deliberately chosen to represent a diverse cross section of talent, have been asked to provide their ideas for an appropriate record. The emphasis is on concept as it suggests ethereality, ephemerality and vulnerability. In order to accommodate travel to other venues, the work is light in weight, small in scale and may be folded down or disassembled. Artists have been asked to conceive of a reminder, a tribute that is enduring and unforgettable.

11. REACTIONS, Exit Art's exhibition about the public's response to 9/11, is gifted to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. and will become part of its permanent collection.

Selections from REACTIONS will be featured in the exhibition: Witness and Response: September 11th Acquisitions at the Library of Congress September 7 October 26, 2002

The donation will be known as the Exit Art Reactions Collection. The Library, as an official repository of American history, felt a responsibility to preserve and share this important material.

Reactions originated and was on view at Exit Art in New York City January 26 April 20, 2002. As a cultural institution near the World Trade Center, Exit Art felt an urgency to present a collective expression of how the events of September 11th changed the behavior of people worldwide. The idea of Reactions was to present the national and international public with an opportunity to respond and have their voices shared.

To reach as diverse an audience as possible, Exit Art sent over 10,000 letters worldwide via post, email, and through an open call on its Web site, www.exitart.org to artists and non-artists alike, encouraging them to submit their responses to September 11. People of all ages, from over twenty-five countries, among them Australia, Brazil, Cameroon, China, Germany, Iceland, Pakistan, and Singapore submitted their work to Exit Art electronically and through the mail. The submissions totaled over 2,500, and included poetry, musical scores, texts, letters, drawings, paintings, collages and photographs. Every response was exhibited.

Exit Art felt that donating Reactions to the Library of Congress would give this very important exhibition the recognition that the work deserves and keep it accessible to a wide public. The Library's exhibition space, state-of-the-art archival housing, cataloguing, and conservation treatments will ensure that Reactions is responsibly exhibited and cared for. It was also important to Exit Art that Reactions be held together in its entirety and be shared with a global public. The Library will scan the entire Exit Art Reactions Collection and make it fully accessible through the Library's award-winning educational Web site, www.loc.gov. The Collection will also be physically available to on-site researchers at the Prints and Photographs Division's Reading Room, and countless others outside the Library through projected exhibition loans to museums and libraries around the world.

www.loc.gov/exhibits. Witness and Response: September 11th Acquisitions at the Library of Congress will be on display through October 26 in the Great Hall of the Library's Thomas Jefferson Building, First and Independence Ave. S.E., Washington, D.C. Exhibition hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Reactions was conceived by Exit Art Co-founders and Directors Jeanette Ingberman and Papo Colo. The Project Coordinators were Jodi Hanel and Bibi Martí.

12. Warren Neidich, FF Alumn, in "Remapping" at Storefront for Art and Architecture
September 14 - October 13

Warren Neidich explores the complex relationships between architecture, film and photography in the urban environment. In the Storefront gallery, Neidich will exhibit for the first time in New York the complete work "Remapping," a series of 10 foot long digitally collaged photos of a typical Los Angeles office building with a mirrored façade. A term borrowed from neurobiology, remapping is a process by which one part of the brain takes over the function of an adjacent, debilitated one. In Neidich's work it functions as an analogy for the way that information, via the narrative of film, has been increasingly mapped onto the built environment and changed the way the individual experiences time and space. In his opinion these reconfigured relations have implications for the way that the brain processes information resulting in what he refers to as the "mutated observer".

Neidich has revisited the site of the "Remapping" series, 8737 Beverly Boulevard, with the new video piece "Blind Man's Bluff" (2002). Unlike the endless facades created in the photo series by seamlessly collaging images together, the video reveals the actual building and in this instance Neidich uses the façade to reflect a dreamlike narrative with the artist himself cast as a blind man. The action that ensues occurs over and over againthe apparatus of the video loop connects analogically to a loop in the brain.The looped activity becomes a metaphor for an obsessive act caused by a faulty neural feed-forward neural loop without inhibitory influences.

Neidich will also perform an "intervention" on the Storefront façade (designed by Vito Acconci and Steven Holl, 1993). By affixing stainless steel panes to the inside and outside of four vertically rotating panels, he will transform the façade into a large-scale perspectival device reflecting moving images of the street into the gallery and images of the gallery out onto the street. Visitors will be encouraged to adjust the angles of the doors, allowing them to manipulate the building/ work of art and its optical effects.
