Sweep and the City, A Tribute to Roger Ebert, and New Work in Miami


A new Lucien Smith exhibition has opened at the Suzanne Geiss Company on Grand St. A series of Polaroids, and brooms that were collected by Smith and his friends as they walked to the studio each morning now adorn the space. Smith has assumed the task of documenting the relics of a bygone New York by remembering the once raw cityscape that was smoothed in favor of gentrification.

Its surface is as much fun as any movie ever made. Its depths surpass understanding.” – Roger Ebert
