Some changes are coming to Culturefix, the performance space/gallery/bar at 9 Clinton Street in 2012. Co-owners Cole Schaeffer and Ari Stern are partnering with Brooklyn-based “Recession Art” to program their cultural events and to run the retail space that has until now been a “pop-up” store (first for Perfect Picnic, then for Ernest Alexander).
On its web site, Recession Art explains:
“We are thrilled to announce that in 2012, Recession Art will expand into an additional permanent space Recession Art and CULTUREfix have partnered to create an art space for emerging artists and aspiring collectors. Recession Art will curate the CULTUREfix gallery with solo shows by Featured Artists and group shows by alumni and other emerging artists. Affordable artwork, prints, and books by these artists and more will be available at Recession Art’s storefront… Curator Risa Shoup will act as RAC’s Programming Director, scheduling weekly events including readings, performances, discussions, and dinners to complement the exhibitions and storefront offerings.
The first show opens January 21st, featuring the work of New York artist Megan Berk. Details can be found on Recession Art’s web site.
