And tomorrow, we hope Cleopatra’s doubles its benefit goals for artist, curator, and Dependent Fair founder Rose Marcus, to help her pay for major surgery–and so do many talented artists who’ve contributed to her benefit auction. All that, and more, after the jump!

“Desperate Art Galleries Give Up As Chelsea Rents Double” Bloomberg reported in February. Postmasters had just announced it would be priced out of its Chelsea home and galleries had begun to express worry that experimentation would stop with the rents so high. At the time, the gallery’s rent rose to $30,000/month, and its move, signaled the beginning of that neighborhood’s exodus: one more nail in Manhattan’s coffin as a viable place to live.
