Join AAARI for a special reception for Chee Wang Ng's 9/11 memorial installation, on display at the Office of the Manhattan Borough President, and two other locations.

Malaysian born artist Chee Wang Ng will exhibit his installation, 9/11 Memorial Installation in Red White Blue, during the month of September to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11th tragedy. Ng’s installation cries for the nation’s loss by transforming a simple bowl of rice with chopsticks stuck in it vertically, taboo in the Chinese culture and eerily resembling the Twin Towers, sitting on top of a table cloth surrounded by candles representing the US flag, to honor the innocent lives lost. A low murmuring Buddhist prayer of salvation for the dead is heard in chants emanating from under the low circular table.
