Exhibition: Exit Art announces Fracking: Art and Activism Against the Drill. Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) is a means of gas extraction that accesses gas trapped more than a mile below the earths surface. This exhibition, a project of SEA (Social Environmental Aesthetics), will expose this process of gas extraction that is contaminating water supplies worldwide. Through documentary videos, photography by Jacques del Conte and Michael Forster Rothbart, commissioned works, public responses and literature, it will engage the public in dialogue on this issue through public lectures and calls to action and encourage audiences to continue educating themselves and their communities on fracking and its detrimental effects.
Exhibition: Reactions investigated how the events of September 11, 2001 altered peoples behavior toward others, the city, and daily life and how the events changed their perceptions of reality and the world at large. In this new era, Exit Art felt an obligation to interpret the feelings of a larger community into a collective expression of analysis. Therefore, we organized a global project called Reactions, an exhibition of submissions based on these changes, culled together from a global call for entries. The call for works had only one requirement: reactions had to fit on a flat, 8-1/2 x 11-inch sheet of paper. Every response was exhibited in the front gallery. This visual and poetic work was put into the context of historical witness. Exit Arts hope was that people everywhere would feel a sense of urgency to respond and participate in this necessary, collective expression. The overwhelming response to the show of work from over twenty-five countries indicated that the September 11th bombings of the World Trade Center made a strong, global impression.
As part of the Reactions exhibition, Exit Art in conjunction with DC Comics and Dark Horse comics, presented over 200 original drawings and paintings of works included in two benefit volumes entitled September 11. Writers and artists in comics joined together to create a two-volume graphic novel set intended to honor and benefit the victims of the stateside terrorist attacks that shocked the world on September 11, 2001. Over 200 artists and writers crafted their own artistic reactions to the events, creating stories and images that the art form of comics was uniquely able to capture.
