Dan Gluibizzi and Zefrey Throwell on KBOO

Listen to the interview here.

On September 26th, Ampersand Gallery and Fine Books will present There is no finish line by Dan Gluibizzi and Zefrey Throwell, a show which riffs off web-based imagery with an erotic spin. The two artists will be my guest this coming Tuesday (the 25th) on Art Focus. It all promises to be a great exhibition and radio show. An exhibition similar in scope was produced by the artists at By and By Gallery in Brooklyn in 2010 called I'll Tumblr 4 Ya.

The exhibition coincides with the publication by Ampersand of Folding Space/Pressing Time, a limited edition book. Similar to the show stylistically, the book is a stand-alone conceptual exploration in which Gluibizzi vibrantly distorts Tumblr Archive grids & Throwell gives photographic form to the erotic chaos that plagues his recurring dreams of time travel. Signed copies of this book will be available at the gallery.

Zefrey Throwell in particular is known for his August, 2011 performance piece Occularpation: Wall Street, in which he & 50 performers appeared nude on Wall Street in New York & enacted actual Wall Street occupations, but both of these artists are on fire.
