Spencer Sweeney by Spencer Sweeney
Spencer Sweeney has been an indelible, irreplaceable, and essential part of New York City's cultural landscape for almost two decades. He connects to deep historical roots in many fields--music, art, and life after dark. This hefty volume is filled with the evidence: pages of fascinating interviews with fellow faithfuls, archival photos documenting the countless moments, both legendary and obscure, and, of course, hundreds of his offhand and thrilling paintings that synthesize our life in NYC in the second decade of this new century. Includes conversations with Abel Ferrara, Alex Bag, Ali Van, Carlo McCormick, Danny Krivit, Edek Bartz, Elizabeth Payton, Gee Vaucher, Glenn O'Brien, Harmony Korine, Jennifer Herrema, Jim Lambie, Jim Toth, Johan Kugelberg, John Giorno, Josh Diamon, Kembra Pfahler, Larry Clark, Lutz Bacher, Marian Young, Mary Heilmann, Natasha Lyonne, Nicky Siano, Nona Hendryx, Paul Major, Rob Pruitt, Tony Shafrazi, and Will Oldham.
