Greenwood - Robinson
During the 70s the Nigel Greenwood gallery in London was one of the leading venues for international conceptual art, and the attached bookshop was one of the first places to carry REALLIFE Magazine. So I was very pleased when Nigel approached me about organizing a show of new art from New York in 1980. He flew over and we did studio visits together, most memorably with Neil Jenny. We went to an address on West Broadway and rang the bell; he buzzed us in and told us to get in the waiting elevator. We stepped in and it took us up, opening on a hallway in which hung two paintings. After allowing us some time to admire the work Jenny stepped out, told us they were both available, and gave us a price. When we got back out on the street Nigel told me that he would seek to borrow a piece in London if I still wanted to include Jenny in the show.
