Nineteen Rooms for September 11
An Essay by Jill Magi


Nineteen Rooms for September 11 is a work created for the ten-year anniversary of 9/11 by writer, poet, and visual artist Jill Magi. The essay draws, in part, on Magi’s experience working in Lower Manhattan and as a writer-in-residence with LMCC, and continues her exploration of body, meaning, memorialization and narrative. Read the Essay

Jill Magi’s book SLOT, to which she refers in this essay, is forthcoming this fall from Ugly Duckling Presse. SLOT combines text and image and is a lyrical response to her investigation of theories of memory and museum design, as well as art and memorialization. Magi’s other books include Cadastral Map (Shearsman 2011), Torchwood (Shearsman 2008), and Threads (Futurepoem 2007), and her visual works have been exhibited at the Textile Arts Center, the Brooklyn Arts Council, apexart, and Pace University. Jill was a 2011 artist-in-residence at the Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn, and a 2006-07 writer-in-residence with the LMCC Workspace Program.

Nineteen Rooms for September 11 is commissioned by LMCC.
