Opening:Alexander Ponomarev at Richard Taittinger Gallery
Water is the subject in Alexander Ponomarev’s latest show, “Stored in Ice,” at Richard Taittinger. Or rather, ice is. The exhibition, which features installations as well as drawings, examines the Russian artist’s “lifelong research and quest for preserving cultural memory within the undefined terrains of the Antarctic Circle,” according to a press release. Ponomarev is also responsible for the upcoming Antarctic Biennale, which will similarly seek to preserve cultural history in ways similar to the preservation of the earth in the deep ocean seas.
Richard Taittinger Gallery, 154 Ludlow Street, 6-9 p.m.
