When Mayor Rudy Giuliani took office in 1994, artist Lucien Smith was just five years old. In his latest exhibition, “A Clean Sweep,” the now 24-year-old multimedia innovator and Cooper Union graduate goes in search of remnants of the gritty New York that were lost during the gentrification of the Giuliani era. The show is broken up into three parts: a group of free-standing brooms collected from New York City streets to symbolize the cleanup effort; 43 Polaroids of the city; and a short film narrated by writer Glenn O’Brien that will make you feel like you still live in the best city in the world.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m. Starts: May 14. Continues through June 22, 2013
