RICHARD TAITTINGER GALLERY was founded in 2014 by Richard Frerejean Taittinger at 154 Ludlow Street. A 6,000 sq ft space on 3 floors designed by Studio MDA. A pioneer of New York City’s Lower East Side art scene, today RTG is surrounded by cultural institutions including the New Museum, the International Center for Photography, and the Brant Foundation. RTG represents a diverse roster of leading international artists at various stages of their careers covering every medium and photography. Working closely with Museum curators, RTG had successfully placed works by our artists in over 24 prestigious Museum collections. RTG advocates for price transparency and democratization of the art world showing artists from outside the traditional art world system together with established talents. In 2019 RTG launched a print program offering affordable works starting at $500 to encourage collecting.
RICHARD TAITTINGER GALLERY supports artists attuned to ethical values, human rights, diversity, feminism, and environmental issues.

Located at 154 Ludlow Street, the gallery is in close proximity to the New Museum, and several luxury hotels, such as the Indigo Hotel and The Ludlow Hotel. The gallery’s unique location in the Lower East Side offers a fresh platform to present artwork. Designed by distinguished architect Markus Dochantschi, founder of Studio MDA, the expansive 5,000 square foot gallery space features 20-foot high ceilings, ERCO New Generation LED lights, and three stories, allowing for large-scale installations, museum-quality exhibitions, film screenings and performances, fashion shows and product launches, and after-hours events, including birthday and wedding receptions, fundraisers, galas, VIP dinners, and cocktail receptions.
Space is available for daily rental or consecutive days (pending already scheduled programming).

154 Ludlow Street is extremely accessible; both geographically and architecturally. The space is blocks away from luxury hotels, parking garages, and primary thoroughfares of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The building’s façade opens at street level, allowing for ease of access for crowds, as well as for the transportation of oversized commodities.
The gallery space is suitable for both large-scale and intimate professional functions. The ground floor can accommodate up to 500 guests. The central core of the gallery is narrow, which can be outfitted to complement a long dining table. There is a bar structure which can be used for food and drink preparation. The two-story walls in the front and back galleries provide optimal branding opportunities.
Award-winning architect, Markus Dochantschi, of MDA Studio designed the Gallery. The modern design features concrete floors, loft ceilings, three separate custom lighting tracks, and skylight. Internationally renowned artists and their works will surface as the backdrop for evening events.
