Museum remembers 9/11

Museum remembers 9/11 Image

Docklands’ Victoria Police Museum is currently hosting the only Australian exhibition of ‘9/11: A Uniform Response’.

The photographic exhibition features 22 images of the 2001 New York attacks, taken by Associated Press photographers.

The exhibition recounts the devastation, the aftermath and the journey to recovery.

New York City Police Museum and Associated Press created the exhibition as a way of paying tribute to the New York City Police Department and other emergency service first-responders.

The exhibition first opened at the New York Police Museum last year.

Victoria Police Museum public programs curator, Kate Spinks (pictured above), contacted the New York Police Museum late last year to discuss the possibility of bringing the exhibition to Docklands.

The exhibition is the first time it has been shown outside New York.

American Consul General Frank Urbanic and Victoria Police assistant commissioner Andrew Crisp opened the exhibition on September 11, marking the 11th anniversary of the attack.

Ms Spinks said the photos featured in the exhibition, particularly those taken on the day of the attack, captured a feeling of immediacy.

The exhibition also elicits strong memories of the event.

“We all remember where we were when we heard about it,” she said.

A memento book has been left in the exhibition room, giving visitors a chance to record their own memories and reflections after viewing the photographs.

The exhibition can be viewed at the Victoria Police Museum at the World Trade Centre, 637 Flinders St, until March 28, 2013.

The Victoria Police Museum is open weekdays from 10am until 4pm. Entry is free.
