Fortnight Institute leaves 4th Street



When more organizations continue to reopen after the COVID-19 PAUSE, Fortnight Institute will not be among them.

Co-founders Fabiola Alondra and Jane Harmon announced this week that they have left the space, which they billed as a public salon here on Fourth Street.

Via an Instagram post: "Fortnight Institute will continue in a new reiteration and location, by-appointment-only. We look forward to this next phase and finding a new home when it is safe to re-open publicly."

Fortnight Institute opened between Second Avenue and the Bowery in April 2016. The Institute "was the beginning of wanting to do something that was unconditional and a space for artists and books and collectors and ephemera," Alondra said at the time.
