E Pluribus: Reflections on the Anniversary of 9/11
August 29 – September 29, 2017
CVA Gallery

Reception plus a performance by Sabba Elahi
Monday, September 11, 5-7 pm

For the performance, Sabba Elahi will be writing the names of dead civilians from drone attacks in Pakistan from 2014 — 2017. The data and the work are inspired by the Naming the Dead Archive from the Bureau of Investigative Journalism. Elahi will write the names during the live performance with ink onto a piece of rice paper that already includes names from ten years of the conflict from 2004 through June 2014.

Artists respond to the 9/11 attacks and the repercussions of those tragic events from which the world still reels. Through an unsentimental perspective, earnest engagement, research and lived experience, combined with beauty and craft, they call attention to and offer opportunities for engagement about topics ranging from drone strikes in Pakistan, to those detained without trial in Guantanamo, to the destruction and looting of ancient and contemporary culture from Iraq to Syria. Artists included in the show are Mahwish Chishty, Amber Ginsberg and Aaron Hughes, Jackie Kazarian, Michael Rakowitz, Alison Ruttan, Barbara Koenen, Mary King and Sabba Elahi.
