RICHARD TAITTINGER GALLERY is pleased to announce the exclusive New York representation of artist Raúl Cordero.
Raúl Cordero (b. 1971) is a Cuban born conceptual artist known for his blurry paintings that incorporate conceptual text elements. Cordero studied art in Cuba at Academia San Alejandro and Instituto Superior de Diseño before moving to do postgraduate work at Graphic Media Development Centre and Rijksakademie Van Beeldende Kunsten in the Netherlands. Cordero’s work mixes figurative elements, often blurred or abstracted with dissonant dotted text, inviting the viewer to explore the dialogue between the text and the image. Cordero’s work is rooted in contemporary ideas and issues and investigates the relationship between reading and looking.
Cordero’s work is in several public collections worldwide, including the Musée National D’Art Moderne Centre Pompidou in Paris, France; Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (MOCA), The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, The Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, in the United States of America; El Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, in Cuba; The Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst (SMAK) in Gent, Belgium; El Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderno (CAAM) and Museo Extremeño e Iberoamericano de Arte Contemporáneo (MEIAC) in Spain, among others.
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.
