Mademoiselle Rose By Eugène DelacroixAccording to the New York Daily News, artist Zefrey Throwell has turned to strip poker for artistic inspiration. Throwell’s most recent project, I’ll Raise You One, was a performance art piece featuring a game of strip poker which ran for seven days ending yesterday, Saturday, Nov. 19.

The performance, which could be fully seen from the street outside Art in General’s storefront in Tribeca, was meant to be an economic and social comment on society’s wealth distribution.

The players, who took part in the game daily from 10.30 a.m. to 6 p.m., were told to wear layers as clothes equalled currency.
