The inaugural installation to open the space is SOLSTICE: Rebirth of Summer- A Hipstamatic Exhibition.  More on the event:

We will exhibit over 100 prints made from the Hipstamatic iPhone app in the gallery curated by Savannah Spirit.

SOLSTICE: Rebirth of Summer is just 1 of the many contests by Hipstamatic which will be held every month online and will also kick off their traveling shows exclusively @ CULTUREfix for the next 6 months before it moves on to a new city. For this particular show there will be 1 grand prize winner to receive a plethora of prizes from DIJITAL FIX chosen by 4 judges at the show

9 Clinton Street is the second location for Dijital Fix, which already has a four-year foothold in Williamsburg at the corner of Bedford and North 5th.  Together, the CULTUREfix-Dijital Fix partnership is a unique concept that blends electronics store geekery with a full gallery bar and snackery.  The multifunctional space also plans to serve up light tapas-style food.
