Joel Meyerowitz’s “Aftermath,” Photographs of Ground Zero, at NYU Open House, August 20-October 13

“Aftermath,” an exhibition of photographs of Ground Zero by Joel Meyerowitz, will be featured at NYU Open House (528 LaGuardia, between Bleecker and West 3rd Streets) from August 20, 2011 through October 13, 2011. Subways: A, B, C, D, E, F, M (West 4th Street). Admission is free and open to the public.

The exhibition draws from Meyerowitz’s Aftermath: World Trade Center Archive (Phaidon Press), which Mayor Michael Bloomberg called “an important tribute to the courage and determination exhibited by New Yorkers in the weeks and months following 9/11.”

Meyerowitz’s archive is the only existing photographic record of Ground Zero after the attacks on the World Trade Center. Fenced off and classified as a crime scene, the area was closed off to all photographers, and only scant information was available about the activities in the guarded enclosure. Through sheer persistence, Meyerowitz became the sole photographer to have continued access to the site and describe its transformation over the next nine months from a place of total devastation to cleared bedrock.

Exhibition hours are: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, noon–5 p.m.; Thursdays, 2–7 p.m.; Saturdays and Sundays, 1-4 p.m. For more information, call 212.992.7351.
