Seen & Heard: RH Gallery

"Fireball" by Wolfgang Ellenrieder••• RH Gallery—the gallery coming to 137 Duane (formerly Raimo pizzeria) that I wrote about yesterday—has announced the details of its inaugural exhibition, “The Third Meaning,” opening Sept. 25 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Says the release: “According to gallery director Rebecca Heidenberg, ‘The work in the exhibition contains a third order of meaning, beyond the obvious and the symbolic.’ Coined by Roland Barthes in a discussion about Russian film director Sergei Eisenstein, the term ‘the third meaning’ is a ‘signifier without a signified’: a representation without a direct, material source. It exists ‘where another language begins. The third meaning—theoretically locatable but not describable can (now) be seen as the passage from language to significance.’ The ‘third meaning’ emerges from and with the viewer to bridge the object of art with its sublime qualities: an experience moving us, however uniquely.” (I feel d-u-m.) The exhibition will feature gallery artists Paul Edmunds, Wolfgang Ellenrieder, Daniel Escobar, Fredrik Färg, Parastou Forouhar, Micah Ganske, Dante Horoiwa, Luis Jacob, Rick Leong and Kirstine Roepstorff.”

••• In the fall, Downtown Dance Factory will take over the entire fifth floor at 291 Broadway (at Reade) for its new complex—which will have three studios, changing rooms for boys and girls, a retail space, and more. Reade Street is now officially the epicenter of young Tribeca.

••• Deals o’ the day: At Groupon, you can get an eyebrow threading and Brazilian bikini wax for $20 (regularly $48) at Thread on Nassau Street. And via Scoop St., pay $10 now for a Ciao Bella punchcard good for six scoops of gelato until November 20 (you don’t have to eat them all at once). It’s valid at the WFC location but not on the Lower East Side (Mott Street, right?). You save $11.90, which is nice, but I don’t know….

••• From Calypso St. Barth: “Come to any Calypso St. Barth store this Wednesday [until 7 p.m.] for a refreshing cocktail and 20% off your purchase!!!”

••• Tribeca Wine Merchants is now having a big sale on red Burgundy.

••• From City Winery: Folk singer, activist, and avowed environmentalist Pete Seeger will be debuting a new protest song at City Winery on Friday, July 23.” Also: “We invite you to come down and enjoy the first Urban Farm-to-Table event to be held in the Hudson Square Courtyard behind City Winery. This intimate white tablecloth dining experience is brought to you by Great Performances and City Winery. Featuring a Latin-American inspired menu, all of the produce is procured from within 100 miles of New York City and brought to the table for your enjoyment. Great Performances will be supplying and preparing produce from their own farm Katchkie as well as other local producers, to offer some the brightest and freshest dishes imaginable.” Tickets, $75, are here.
