This catalog was published on the occasion of Lucien Smith's exhibition A Clean Sweep – an exhibition concerned with the landscape of downtown New York, which has undergone many transformations. As a physical witness to the area's relatively recent flux and its current stage of development and cleaned-up appearance, Lucien Smith motivated to assume the task of capturing this progress by imaging the narrative action, documenting the few remaining vestiges of a fading era. A Clean Sweep includes images from Smith's exhibition, as well as original texts by Aaron Bondaroff, Glenn O'Brien and Bill Powers plus excerpts from interviews with Fran Lebowitz, Rudolph W. Giuliani, Ian Frazier and Spike Lee. Published by The Suzanne Geiss Co. and OHWOW Gallery.
