gallery no one is excited to present “another car show,” a two-person exhibition by Danny Epstein and Lucas Baisch. Please come and join us for the opening reception this Friday 6pm-8pm. Also it will be our last exhibition this year! Stay warm:)
When driving, the human body moves towards a place of ‘excitation displacement’ or the firing of stimuli as a result of increased adrenaline. At the cusp of fear and excitement lives a sanctioned danger. The driver finds security and accepts risk in deliberate movement.
The works that populate another car show are both cheeky and foreboding acknowledgments to the joys and dangers of moving fast. Artists Lucas Baisch and Danny Epstein draw from personal experiences of vehicular trauma – celebrating them, damaging them. Here, the artists provide a pseudo-car show as romanticization and capitalist jest. An archive for peril and chance to be quantified, sold, and bought. The exhibition functions as a gesture towards nostalgia, lineage, and the impermanence inherent to mobilization.
