Lucien Smith: A Clean SweepThe Suzanne Geiss Company (76 Grand Street, New York, NY) Map it Free
The Suzanne Geiss Company is pleased to present an exhibition by Lucien Smith of brooms and Polaroids. Motivated by the transformations of downtown New York during the reign of former mayor Rudolf Giuliani, Smith has assumed the task of documenting the relics of a bygone New York. Through a series of categorical Polaroids and a sculptural installation, Smith remembers the once raw cityscape that was smoothed in favor of gentrification.
