A new shop / gallery hybrid has been open for a week now on Smith St in Fitzroy. Called in.cube8r, it leases space in its cabinets and shelves for local artists, jewellery designers and other craftspeople to display and sell their work. The business model is based on renal rather than commission – artists don’t have to pay an additional commission to have their work in in.cube8r. I had watched the shop evolve from the usual newspapered window to something bright and inviting to enter.
