Nichole Caruso, a former director of the late Chelsea gallery Wallspace, which closed last month after 12 years in business, will be joining the Lower East Side gallery Lisa Cooley as a director, Cooley announced today.

Wallspace closed permanently on August 7, choosing not to renew its lease. Cofounder Jane Hait told Bloomberg in July, “It’s a particularly tough climate for people doing work that’s not necessarily super commercial.”
