Gavin Brown’s enterprise – 620 Greenwich St – NYC
hrs: Tues-Sat 10am-6pm
SIMON CERIGO dropped in on the SPENCER SWEENEY ‘LIVE’ installation at GBE yesterday. He is happy to report that the installation – and Spencer Sweeney – himself – being part of the installation – are more spaced out than ‘DISTRICT 9’ – the science fiction movie, which is Simon’s current rave fave.
in Simon’s words: “The show, which is a voyage through Sweeney’s many alter egos – has a wonderful audio aspect to it – which represents Spencer’s obsession with music and the tools of its ‘representation’. Being an audiophile myself – I was impressed with the broad range of vintage tube and transistor equipment. The whole space explodes with Mr. Sweeney’s frenetic, reckless, and delicate painterly maneuvers. The show also functions at its highest potential when there are a lot of (happy!!) people there – having a party.
up-date: the next performance is – this FRI JAN 15, 2010 – at 8pm.
