Matt Freedman (MFA Senior Critic and Lecturer) in Exhibition at Big & Small/Casual Gallery, Opening Friday, Sept. 11, 5 - 8pm

"Twin Twin III, Artists’ Edition is the latest installment of Matt Freedman’s Twin Twin project, previous versions of which were shown at VertexList in 2005 and Pierogi in 2006. Freedman’s installations examine the continuing effect of the 9-11 attacks on our cultural and individual imagination by bringing together literally hundreds of found and altered objects that display ghostly resemblances to the fallen towers. The collection includes everything from modeled objects, to furniture, toys, the grating on an air conditioner and the scar on a boy’s knee.

For this edition of the project Freedman asked a number of his artist friends to look through their own work and contribute anything that reminded them of the event, either by mimicking the towers themselves or in more subtle ways. Fifty-three artists have lent work to the installation, and their work, paintings, sculpture, and video, will be displayed alongside objects from Freedman’s collection."
