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.

It’s actually the name of a new street-style apparel store opening at 174 Ludlow Street. For the last year, 174 Ludlow had been a vacancy, with its security gate perpetually shuttered. […]
