Spencer Sweeney Provided Loft and Paintings for New Abel Ferrara Movie

A scene from the film.

Spencer Sweeney’s loft and paintings serve as the home and works of Willem Dafoe’s artist wife in the new apocalyptic Abel Ferrara movie 4:44 Last Day on Earth. This isn’t news, per se, but it’s an interesting little piece of trivia that J. Hoberman drops in his column over at Blouin Artinfo.

The movie concerns the end of the world and has received mixed reviews at this point. Here’s a bonus video of Mr. Ferrara at Mr. Sweeney’s studio ahead of his recent show at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, “The Pharaoh’s Lounge aka Party Paintings and Sauna aka The Life and Times of Spencer Sweeney.”
