When East Village Wine & Liquor relocated to its current Clinton Street location last year, its former space two blocks away was quickly boarded and gutted.

Construction commenced inside 183 Stanton last August with the purpose of converting the former spirits store into a new gallery. As previously reported, the location will henceforth be headquarters for TOTAH, the eponymous space for gallerist David Totah. It focuses on modern and contemporary art, with a mission to “acknowledge and channel the creative dialogue between the artist, their perception and their work through our platform.”

No word yet on an official launch day.

David Totah has been in the game for some two decades, and comes from a pedigree of gallerists. His family ran showrooms in London and New York, “identifying and promoting such artist as Boetti, Castellani, Fontana et al.”
