9. Rainer Ganahl’s “Please, Teach Me Chinese / Please, Teach Me Italian — Marx a Prato / Gucci a Prato” at MX Gallery
Artist Rainer Ganahl updates his “Commes des Marxists” fashion show, which first appeared at White Columns in 2013, at lower Manhattan’s MX Gallery. The fashion performance, which features clothing printed with Chinese and Italian text, was originally slated to appear in the Italian city of Prato, which is home to a large population of migrant Chinese workers. But museum officials interrupted the show after discovering that Ganahl’s work highlighted the sometimes violent clashes between the city’s Chinese and Italian populations. Now, Ganahl is reprising the work for one night at a gallery that’s fittingly situated in a part of Chinatown that was previously known as Little Italy.
