The Artsy Fartsy Show congratulates Zefrey Throwell on his work to be exhibited at the MoMA! You first heard Zefrey on our debute show of the Artsy Fartsy Show a year ago and in the Spring of this year, he visited our studios to give you the first scoop on OCULARPATION: WALL STREET, the public performance art piece that foreshadowed and galvanized the Occupy Wall Street movement.
If you have missed some of the cool artsy innovative things that Zefrey has done here is your chance to see it at the Museum of Modern Art (11 West 53 Street New York, NY 10019 PH: (212) 708-9400)

I'll Raise You One
Nov 12-19, 2011
10:30am - 6pm daily
79 Walker Street (by Canal and Broadway) Opening Party on Saturday the 12th at 6pm at Art in General
Art in General commissioned Zefrey to do a piece for Performa 11 and its going to be a real humdinger!
Using the conflicting languages of teenage love and small stakes capitalism, I’ll Raise You One… is continuous strip poker game performed in the public realm.
At the end of each round, when the participants typically exit and private affairs begin, playing members will get dressed and begin again, creating a nonsensical repetitive pattern that continues round after round. Transforming Art in General’s Storefront space into a stage, I’ll Raise You One… establishes a world of absurdity and purposelessness, letting the casual onlooker join in a guilt-free voyeurism, while teasing out a different outlook on our personal interactions and day to day routines.
This will be a hell of an endurance project. I'll be playing strip poker for 7 days straight) as well as something that truly captivating to the eye. I've styled the storefront window space after Pasolini films and there will be free collectible posters! - Zefrey Throwell
