For the second time in under two years, the identity of 57 Stanton Street is shifting. The ground level, that is. When Lambert Fine Arts obtained the keys in January 2012, the iconic Fusion Arts Museum ceased to exist. The only remnants of the eclectic showroom were affixed to the exterior, placed there by its founder and building owner Shalom Neuman. Now another funky gallery is moving here from Long Island City.

SPACEWOMb Gallery, born in 2009 beside the 5Pointz graffiti mecca, is indeed trecking across the river and into the Lower East Side. 57 Stanton will be its new HQ come late September. Those who might be worried about the facade of metalworks shouldn’t … the gallery tells us they plan to weld more onto it.

The four-year-old SPACEWOMb specializes in contemporary art, and primarily exhibits the work of emerging and established artists from around the world.
