Gavin Brown's Enterprise

This event has ended.

Gavin Brown's enterprise presents the second part of Spencer Sweeney's unprecedented exhibition "Egyptian Diving Board."

Sweeney is a seminal figure in the culture of 21st century New York. In a city where all creativity must be packaged and branded and then protected against risk, Sweeney has consistently avoided category. What he is matters less than what he does. In our opinion he has carried the standard for a city of the imagination - a city that barely exists anymore. A city that he came to from Philadelphia, and a city in which he still resides.

For the weeks from mid December to mid January when he sat like a cuckoo at 620 Greenwich St, we glimpsed that city and were thrilled by the sight and sounds. Following on from his Christmas extravaganza the gallery will present, for two weeks only, the more than 15 paintings that resulted from his occupation.

Come down to Greenwich St and take a tour. See the pictures. See the portraits.
