“Artistry cannot always be captured in two dimensions,” writes The Last Magazine. Which is why this Fashion Week, they’ll be hosting a four-day pop up in Nolita. New York-based The Last Magazine is an arts and culture magazine that’s as big as its sweeping name should suggest. Printed quarterly, Last Mag comes on 11.5”-by-21” paper, but to jump off the page, they’re hosting The Last Space.
The four-day exhibition is Thursday through Sunday from 11 am-6 pm and features shout outs to Leong Leong (also a finalist in the Audi Urban Initiative), Alexander McQueen, Rebecca Chamberlain, Binki Shapiro and dozens more. Past issues of Last Mag will be available, as will limited-edition candles.
For The Last Space pop up, free and open to all New Yorkers, The Last Magazine will be featuring a musical performance tonight by Ex Cops and screenings of The Last Postcard, a series of short films by fashion designer Phillip Lim, Interview mag editor-at-large Christopher Bollen, international fashion models Elisa Sednaoui and Siri Tollerod, CNN reporter & Edward R. Murrow Award-winner Jason Carroll, photographer Adrian Gaut, designer Waris Ahluwalia and Last Magazine founders Magnus Berger and Tenzin Wild.
Bringing people together is nothing new for The Last Magazine, which hosts dinners, parties and pop-up spaces with enough regularity to be called in innovator in the magazine space. “We have begun to think about a shift in perspective away from just the printed page toward actual experience and human interaction,” write founders Magnus Berger, Jonathan Shia and Tenzin Wild. In other words, people are the best fun.
