On September 11, 2001, a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks were carried out by the Islamic terrorist group Al-Queda, with New York City feeling the brunt of this horrific tragedy. The events of 9/11 represent the largest attack and subsequent rescue and recovery operation ever on U.S. soil. In just a few short hours, both of the monstrous, 110 story-tall World Trade Center Towers, were devastated by two separate hijacked commercial airliners that were flown into them. The entire world watched in awe as nearly 3,000 people lost their lives as the buildings crumbled.

Detainees at the United States military prison camp known as Guantánamo Bay have made art from the time they arrived, at first clandestinely and then during classes provided by a Joint Task Force Guantánamo instructor.

This exhibit presents the work of some of the most dedicated Chinese contemporary artists who explore in their works the issue of human rights in China, focusing on such issues as democracy, homelessness, corruption, prostitution, unwarranted incarceration, and appropriation of public resources for private benefit and more. Using a variety of media – painting, photographs, documentary video, sculpture, installation and music – they present the normal circumstances of life in China where human rights are commonly abused. Compared to the high-speed development of the economy promoted by the Chinese government, human rights have been delayed in this social political system that caused intense conflict in Chinese society. Even the basic rights for modern society are challenged.
