The attacks of September 11, 2001 were among the most pictured disasters in history, yet they remain, a decade later, underrepresented in cultural discourse—particularly within the realm of contemporary art. Responding to these conditions, MoMA PS1 curator Peter Eleey brings together more than 70 works by 41 artists—many made prior to 9/11—to explore the attacks' enduring and far-reaching resonance. Eschewing images of the event itself, as well as art made directly in response, the exhibition provides a subjective framework within which to reflect upon the attacks in New York and their aftermath, and explores the ways that they have altered how we see and experience the world in their wake. September 11 will open on the tenth anniversary of the attacks and occupy the entire second floor of the museum, with additional works located elsewhere in the building and in the surrounding neighborhood. The exhibition is accompanied by a 248-page catalog designed by Kloepfer-Ramsey and published by MoMA PS1. In addition to Peter Eleey's curatorial essay, the catalog includes contributions from Alexander Dumbadze and Robert Hullot-Kentor, as well as texts by Alexander Kluge, W. J. T. Mitchell, and Retort.
