NELSON SULLIVANS DOWNTOWN 83-89
NELSON SULLIVANS DOWNTOWN 83-89
Dir. Nelson Sullivan, 2001
Curated by Steve Lafreniere and Dick Richards
USA, 300 minutes.

5 hour duration - audiences are welcome to arrive and stay of their own accord between 7.30 and 10pm.

Last presented in 2001 at Gavin Browns Enterprise gallery in the Meatpacking District, Steve Lafrenieres exhibition of Nelson Sullivans video work paints a remarkable portrait of downtown New York in the 1980s.

Reviewing hundreds of hours of Sullivans recorded work, co-curated by Sullivans friend and colleague Dick Richards, Lafrenieres presentation distills nearly a decade of downtown life into five hours, broken into five hour-long acts. In their original presentation, each act was presented sequentially, with a different hour presented each day, for a five day period.

Prior to his sudden death, Nelson Sullivan was at the center of the 80s downtown queer arts community, creatively documenting the entertainment, personalities, and places of downtown life into five hour-long acts. Originally presented over five days as background for a gallery show, Spectacle is screening all five hours consecutively, encouraging the audience to stay as long as theyd like.
