In a Richard Prince-for-Louis Vuitton world, “selling out” doesn’t have the same sting. But Terence Koh’s pop-up shop “Everything Must Out Going” blurs art and commerce lines on a more personal level. “It’s not selling out when you’re doing it with your friends,” says curator Elizabeth Lovero. Koh’s Canal Street space (called Asia Song Society, a.k.a. A.S.S.—haha!) is made for crossing that border—not quite a commercial gallery, but not a nonprofit, either. It’s just a place where people (here ranging from Rita Ackermann and Dash Snow to Kai Kühne and Chrissie Miller) can be creative in any medium and maybe sell stuff sans the pesky labels. What can you buy at EMOG? There are Comme des Garçons T-shirts created with Tauba Auerbach for $100 or aNYthing tees made with Dan Colen and Aurel Schmidt for $40. On the more conceptual side is a blank book of tracing paper that comes with an afternoon tour of Manhattan with artist Tyler Coburn, who does rubbings at various city landmarks. Price: $99.95. The op-arty space, designed by Rafael de Cárdenas, an architect with fine art roots, is a work unto itself, mixing gallery mainstays like pedestals with found furniture and elements of retail.
“Everything Must Out Going,” Asia Song Society, 45 Canal Street, May 30 to June 6.
The rumors of Brit It girl Alexa Chung’s move across the pond have just been confirmed by MTV. The fashion maven (she sat front-row at Louis Vuitton this season) and TV presenter will be starring in The Alexa Chung Show, an hour-long variety show that replaces the now defunct TRL. Will her penchant for apron dresses, thigh-high stockings, and brogues translate to American audiences? Hard to say, but we’ll definitely be tuning into the channel for the first time in about a decade.
