RICHARD TAITTINGER GALLERY Opening of Sinthome

 

Richard Taittinger, descendent to the distinguished champagne family, departed the bubbly business to focus on his true passion: Contemporary Art. And so the Richard Taittinger gallery was created, located at 154 Ludlow Street. Connecting with the energy and liveliness of Manhattan’s Lower East Side neighborhood, the gallery offers an impressive platform dedicated to foster critical dialogue between artists, viewers and organizations. The 5,000 square foot space highlights 20- foot ceilings and features a large skylight in the main space, allowing for large-scale installations. The Richard Taittinger gallery celebrated its inaugural exhibition, Sinthome, (an ancient spelling of the word symptom in French), highlights the works of Haluk Akakçe, Ding Yi, Théo Mercier, Alexander Ponomarev, Recycle Group, and Wang Du. The term Sinthome, used by psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan signifies the creative process and the work of art itself. It was used to describe the Borromean Knot’s fourth ring, holding together the real, the symbolic, and the imaginary realms of the psyche. Sinthome is open to the public from March 3-March 29.
