TONIGHT :: 112 Green Street Reemerges


The Combine celebrates it grand opening tonight, at 112 Green Street, NYC. The new space seeks to commemorate the historic and artistic relevance of the address, while providing a new venue for the exhibition of art and multi-media, performance based events.

From 1970 – 1980, 112 Green Street was the home of the 112 Workshop, a studio and exhibition space that fostered an influential group of artists including Laurie Anderson, Joseph Beuys, Louis Bourgois, Chuck Close, Spalding Gray, Phillip Glass,  Richard Serra, William Wegman, Dennis Oppenheim and countless others. The 112 Workshop eventually relocated and reemerged as Chelsea’s White Columns Gallery, while the original underground space became the headquarters for Green Street Recordings, which was at the forefront of the 80s and 90s hip-hop movement, recording Kurtis Blow, Afrika Bambaataa, Run DMC, Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, and De La Soul to name a few.

Now, 112 Green reopens as The Combine, to host a new generation of artists who carry on the ideals of the address’ influential past.  The inaugural exhibit, Work To Do, opens tonight, with a live performance by Afrika Bambaataa and Soulsonic Force
