Dan Gluibizzi & Zefrey Throwell's There is no finish line opens September 26th at Ampersand. Both artists will be in attendance & Ninkasi is providing beer. Here's the PR:
"We are pleased to welcome back Ampersand regular Dan Gluibizzi for a second exhibition at the gallery, this time in collaboration with New York artist, Zefrey Throwell. As with their previous two-man exhibition at By and By Gallery in Brooklyn titled I'll Tumblr 4 Ya (2010), the photographs & paintings in There is no finish line are invitingly erotic & directly engage the disorienting plethora of web-based imagery that defines much of our daily experience. The existence of a finish line not only predicts an end to something, it also implies an awareness of one's current position in space-time &, by extension, the meaning of one's relationship to culture, reality & society at large."
