Artist Terence Koh, apparently unimpressed by the contemporary-ness of Art Basel this year, momentarily found a voice on the Times Website today. In an interview on their Moment blog, writer Alex Hawgood asked the lurid superstar whether the Miami festival is more about the art or the parties. Koh explained, "Art is a party. Why bother otherwise?" "I am the hostess with the mostest," he added, describing a launch party for Daddy magazine that he threw at a strip joint. "We had three grand in one-dollar bills that we handed to our friends to give to the dancers. I didn’t remember anything the next day except for the stains." Oh, Terry, still up to the same high jinks. Koh, who made his beginnings with the Website asianpunkboy.com and after four years of meteoric success now sells works all over the world, says he made more "filthy money" this year than last. Which was sure to assuage at least some of the chafing feeling left by the festival (which he described on his Website thusly: "MIAMI SUCKS LIKE A COCK IN AN ASS THAT HAS BEEN TURNED INSIDE OUT"), but may not be enough. Terence, who described himself to the Times as "the Naomi Campbell of the art world," said that his post-Miami plans include "retiring from art." Not that we believe him, but still. For a moment we were worried about where we were going to get our fix of gold-plated poop next year.
