This Saturday I visited No Comment, an art exhibition in response to Occupy Wall Street at the historic JP Morgan Building. the general vibe of “No Comment” perfectly captured what has been growing in Zuccotti Park and is now spreading across the country. Even though most of the works were laden with the struggles of the 99%, there was also a strong sense of community and celebration among visitors.
On the 1oth anniversary of September 11, 2001, Loft in the Red Zone, an artistic tribute to 9/11, opened at the historic JP Morgan Building at 23 Wall Street. A week later the show was wrapped up in the middle of Occupy Wall Street as protesters, barricades and police invaded the area at the start of the occupation. Loft in the Red Zone is now joining in the movement, hosting a pop-up exhibition entitled No Comment that is inspired by Occupy Wall Street.
