Over at 20 Clinton Street, the former “LOHO Beauty Supply” combination just changed its tune from hair to art. The two-store footprint is now home to another Chelsea-based gallery. It’s an annex of the Marianne Boesky Gallery. Far from her flagship locale, “Boesky East,” as it’s known, debuted this past Sunday, just in time for the Frieze New York art fair.

Boesky East is one of the only galleries on Clinton Street, and a humongous one, at that, weighing in at 1,110 square-feet. The other would be the anarchistic Vector Gallery, an artistic polar-opposite which boasts the distinction of the most outlandish window display.

The new gallery space opened with an inaugural exhibit by Italian artist Pier Paolo Calzolari. Apparently, it’s all based on frost that builds up on the artwork in the mornings and melts by the evening.

Hell Square Bodega Wars Heat up with ‘Legacy Gourmet Deli’ on Essex Street

Shots fired. The bodega wars within the confines of Hell Square are heating up. The Subway franchise location at 153 Essex Street (i.e. Gotham Court) folded last fall after a bumpy few years in business. A six-month dormancy period followed, but was relatively short-lived. Legacy Gourmet Deli is next to bat in this mixed-use complex, […]
