Upcoming: Eddie Peake – “Head” @ Deitch Projects

On September 8th, Jeffrey Deitch will be re-opening his Wooster Street gallery with three nights of performances from Eddie Peake. By reputation, attendees to the RSVP only ([email protected]) events will be seeing the human body on display with live music and original compositions. Inspired by after seeing ENDYMION, the London-born artist’s performance for Performa 13, Deitch decided to inaugurate his return to the NY art scene with Peake’s explorations of voyeurism, sexuality and gender.

Recap: Coney Art Walls

After a close look at the creation of three murals (Eine, Miss Van, Maya Hayuk) for the Coney Art Walls, we now have an recap of the event for you to enjoy. Curated by Jeffrey Deitch at an empty lot on Coney Island at 1320 Bowery on the west side of Stillwell Avenue (open 7 days a week), 30 artists were invited in to paint among food vendors chosen by Smorgasburg. Highlights for us was something from Futura (seen above) mirroring some of his photography work, a […]

Preview: “Calligraffiti: 1984-2013″ @ Leila Heller Gallery

After word leaked that Jeffrey Deitch would be stepping down as the director of the LA MOCA, the art world has been watching to see what his plans were for the future.

Rumor Mill: Jeffrey Deitch’s Reign At MOCA Over?

Late last night, LA Weekly reported that Jeffrey Deitch will be leaving the LA MOCA at the end of the month. Despite increasing attendance during his reign at the Los Angeles institution and bringing in a fresh vision for the museum, there continue to be financial woes. Signs of discontent came to a head also with the controversial resignation of chief curator Paul Schimmel as well as multiple artists leaving the board under Deitch’s watch. It will be interesting to see what is next for Deitch as well as […]

Collections: Jeffrey Deitch

As collectors, it is always interesting to get a look at some “OPP” or “Other People’s Paintings,” especially when you know it will be awesome. You may remember a video tour of Jeffrey Deitch’s house in Los Angeles that we pointed out to our readers all the way back in 2010 when he had just moved in after taking on the directorship of MOCA. Well, here a closer look at his treasure trove of paintings and sculptures courtesy of Kathy Grayson when she visited his […]

Preview / Installation: Shepard Fairey – “Art in the Streets” @ MOCA

Things are revving up in Los Angeles as we draw near to the MOCA’s historic Art in the Streets show. With new museum director Jeffery Deitch at the helm, the expectation is that we will see the biggest names participate – from Barry McGee to Os Gemeos, JR to Saber and much more – we’ll reveal it to you soon. For now, Shepard Fairey (featured) gives us our first glimpse into the Geffen Contemporary location of the MOCA where he and the Obey crew are […]

Streets: Blu for Los Angeles MOCA (Buffed)

If you blinked, you would have missed Blu’s newest mural in Los Angeles. Invited to by the MOCA to paint a wall ahead of it’s highly anticipated “Art in the Streets” exhibition in April, the museum apparently had forgotten that the Italian street sensation made his name making pointed political statements with his large-scale work, often site-specific and aimed directly at the local governments and/or corporations. With the piece facing a Veterans Administration building, the museum (with or without Deitch) decided to buff over the […]

Basel Week Miami ’10: MOCA (LA) x LCD Soundsystem Party @ The Raleigh

Last night, AM attended the Basel party thrown by Jeffrey Deitch and the Los Angeles MOCA with guests being ushered to their seats with cigars & table service at the hip poolside of the Raleigh Hotel. It felt like all of South Beach was trying to get into the exclusive party where guest band LCD Soundsystem performed a monster set. We had a great time catching up as many of our friends & peers in the art scene were in attendance. Catch up with all […]
