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, is opening the 5,000-square-foot contemporary art gallery with a VIP reception on March 2, Taittinger’s publicist told The Real Deal. The gallery will open to the public the following day.

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
