154 Ludlow Street and Richard
The art world is popping bottles on the Lower East Side thanks to a new gallery opened by Champagne scion Richard Taittinger.
Taittinger, who has worked as an art consultant, opened a 5,000-square-foot contemporary art gallery last week with a VIP reception, according to the New York Post.
The space, located at 154 Ludlow Street, is on the same block as the Ludlow Hotel, restaurant Dirty French and a planned Soho House expansion.
The new gallery features 20-foot ceilings, allowing for large-scale installations, and was designed by studioMDA, the firm behind Paul Kasmin Gallery and 303 Gallery. [NYP] – Christopher Cameron
