About Spencer Sweeney

The work of multimedia artist Spencer Sweeney channels the vivacity of New York’s downtown art and nightlife scene, in which the artist has played many roles including stints as the drummer of the art-rock band Actress, club owner, and DJ. Sweeney’s artistic output spans collaged paintings of bright cartoonish imagery to multimedia installations that—true to his background in the entertainment industry—create immersive leisure experiences for visitors. In 2010, Sweeney took over Gavin Brown’s Enterprise gallery by installing his own studio and living space, filling it with his paintings and sculptures, a project that culminated in the live performance of a rock opera in progress.

American, b. 1973
