For four days during New York Fashion Week, The Last Magazine will present THE LAST SPACE at Openhouse Gallery, in one of New York City’s premier shopping and cultural destinations downtown. The Last Magazine will offer the public the opportunity to experience the magazine come to life prior to its newsstand release.

Presented by The Last Magazine, THE LAST SPACE is a reinterpretation of the magazine as a physical exhibition and a curated series of events celebrating the art, fashion, film, literature, and personal effects featured in the spring and fall issues. As the contemporary idea of what a magazine is and can be continually changes—through an influx of one-offs, iPad editions, and digital downloads—we have begun to think about a shift in perspective away from just the printed page towards actual experience and human interaction.

The final product of a print magazine is the result of a number of collaborations between artists, stylists, designers, photographers, filmmakers, editors, and writers—people who take their subject matter and adapt it to the printed page. But music is a sensuous experience, fashion is about movement with the body and its touch against the skin, and the artistry cannot always be captured in two dimensions. As the makers of The Last Magazine, we have the opportunity to understand these objects and events in their purest forms, before we invite them to move in together on our pages. And we would like our readers to have the chance to understand them this way as well.

THE LAST SPACE will also include a pop-up shop featuring back issues of The Last Magazine, a limited-edition candle in collaboration with Kilian, and other exclusive objects featured in the issues.

THE LAST SPACE will be located at Openhouse Gallery at 201 Mulberry Street, New York, NY 10012.
