"World Views Open Studio Exhibition"
2001-12-01 until 2002-01-13
New Museum of Contemporary Art
New York, NY,
World Views, one of LMCC's artist-in-residence programs at the World Trade
Center, was housed in 10,000 square feet of windowed space on the 92nd floor
of Tower One. Participating artists had the rare opportunity to work
side-by-side in a site known throughout the world as both an architectural
wonder and an unparalleled center of commerce. The Port Authority of New
York and New Jersey provided raw, temporarily vacant space for the program,
which artists converted into working studios with some of the most
exceptional views in the city. At the end of each five-month residency
cycle, the public was invited to a series of special events culminating with
a two-day Open Studio exhibition in the studio space.
New Museum Henry Luce III Director Lisa Phillips said: It is crucial for
cultural institutions to work together now and we felt it was important to
support a vital downtown arts institution in need.
The exhibition at the New Museum will present work by the Summer 2001 (May
to November) World Views artists who were in residence at the time of the
World Trade Center tragedy. The participating artists are: Simon Aldridge,
Naomi Ben-Shahar, Monika Bravo, Laurie Halsey Brown, Justine Cooper, Lucky
Debellevue, Carola Dertnig, Mahmoud Hamadani, Kara Hammond, Jeff Konigsberg,
Motonobu Kurokawa, Geraldine Lau, and Nathan See.
