"Ground Zero"
2002-07-13 until 2002-08-24
Museum of New Art
Detroit, , USA United States of America

Ground Zero, an exhibition of post 911 art, will be on display from July 13th to August 24th 2002 at Detroit's Museum of New Art, in the historic Book Building on Washington Boulevard, in the downtown center of the city. The show, organized by Artists Frank Shifreen, Daniel Sheffer and Julius Vitali, features the work of over 50 artists in the 2nd floor exhibition space of the Museum. Artists from all over the country have created works in many styles, varied media and viewpoint that depict artists reactions to the world since last September and the drama of cultural clash.

The works in Ground Zero examine the issues of 9/11 and the seismic shift that has occurred as a result of the challenge to western values by radical Islam. We have changed. Irony and distance have given way to a more serious, committed, if polarized time. Daniel Scheffer says, " We have ended an isolationist era in the U.S and have come face to face with our own vulnerabiltiy and strength. We are connected to the rest of the world." The exhibition organizers hope to engage the public in exploration and dialogue . In the imagination, images can reveal knowledge not accessible to logic. We are an IMAGE-nation impacted by visual bombardment from an endless data stream. This show features art that illuminates, educates and entertains.
