"September 11, 2011 (please stop saying 9/11)" features new work by Christopher Saucedo, including cloud-like images of the World Trade Center complex composed of blue and white paper pulp, along with a series of identical portraits of the artist's dead brother marked differently with glowing hot steel graphic brands.
While Saucedo has lived in New Orleans for nineteen years, he grew up in Brooklyn. In 1970, he and his three brothers watched the World Trade Center’s construction. Two of those brothers grew up to join the FDNY. His youngest brother, firefighter Gregory T. Saucedo was last seen on the 43rd floor of the north tower traveling up, against a stream of evacuees, to offer aid and assistance and to put out the impossible fire, which ultimately consumed all seven buildings of the sixteen-acre World Trade Center complex and Gregory.
Opening reception on September 10, 2011 from 6-9 pm. Exhibition will be on view through October 2, Saturday and Sunday, 12-5 pm.
Event Time: 18:00:00
