Dark and Dirty in the Lower East Side

In dialgue with New Museum’s summer show Younger Than Jesus, there are some challenging shows in the Lower East Side.
Oil Now by Theo Mercier at Envoy Enterprises presents an ironic sculptural installation of found objects, cut and pasted pornography, and racial non-sequitors.

I did like the fresh grave that emminated soft muffled music titled Punk is not Dead.

More death, multiples and irony at Terence Koh’s Asia Song Society (charming acronym ASS) Everything Must Out Going

ASS is unique space in ChinaTown usually showing ecclectic shows by Koh’s artist friends. The current show Everything Must Out Going is an array of artist multiples, prints, books, odds and ends, and photos. The “show continues” in the scary dark and dusty basement, which actually is a great space, housing a glass vitrine with a skeleton and a delightful digital slideshow.
