Q&A with Jeffrey Deitch

Following MOCA’s stunning announcement yesterday that Jeffrey Deitch will be taking over their director, the first interview with the gallerist has come out. Tyler Green conducts an incredibly insightful and fascinating Q&A where many of the questions we raised when we first broke the story were answered as well as some that we didn’t think about.  For example, Deitch touches on being forced to disclose what pieces he has in his extensive collection, whether he will be restricted from showing any artists he has worked […]

Rumor Mill: Deitch to head MOCA?

Some interesting chatter coming out ahead of the press conference on Monday to announce the Los Angeles MOCA’s new director. One of the top candidates is none other than Jeffrey Deitch, whose booth we recently visited at Art Basel Miami. If he’s confirmed (he’s got a good shot, seeing Eli Broad is probably backing him, two major galleries in LA back him – Javier Peres of Peres Projects and Blum & Poe, and his gallery confirms Deitch is in LA right now for “meetings”), it […]

Teaser: Mike Shine @ SF MoMA

Following his recent recreations of his historic Art Shack at Art Basel Miami and the Museum of Craft and Folk Art earlier this year, Mike Shine starts off 2010 proper with yet another installation, this time at the prestigious SF MoMA.  Debuting on the eve of their 75th Anniversary Show, the “Mike Shine Show” will run from January 16th to the 17th.  Mike recently sent us a couple photos of the mural he’s working on, see the second process pic after the jump.

Video: (R)Evolution of Urban Art @ Warrington Museum & Art Gallery

The Warrington Museum & Art Gallery is holding an exhibition until March 13th highlighting some “Urban Art” from artists like Banksy, Blek le Rat, Gavin Turk, Adam Neate (interviewed), David Choe, Faile (featured), Lorraine Robbins, Antony Micallef (interviewed), Ron English (featured), José Parlá, Elbow-Toe (interviewed), Sam Taylor-Wood, Candice Tripp (interviewed), Swoon (interviewed) and Takashi Murakami – um, yes… Murakami. We believe the pieces are part of a private collection that also exhibited at the Stoke-on-Trent Potteries Museum & Art Gallery earlier this year.

Video: Dzine @ Bass Museum of Art

Vernissage TV was on hand to document one of the shows we enjoyed during our visit to Miami for Art Basel Week. As we previously mentioned, Chicago- based artist Dzine brought his sculptures, paintings and installations for an exhibition at the Bass Museum of Art with a custom chandelier and “ghost bike” being some of the standout pieces. Take a look as he walks through and explains his work. Discuss Art Basel week here.

Showing: Cai Guo-Qiang – “Hanging Out In The Museum” @ Taipei Fine Arts Museum

Currently showing at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum is a major exhibition from gunpowder artist extraordinaire Cai Guo Qiang. As you can see in the video above, Qiang demonstrated his explosive technique by creating some of his signature pieces (also seen in the “Stages” show) in person. Far from a one trick pony, Qiang brings with him a body of work similar to what we witnessed at the Guggenheim in New York last year with his “hanging car” installation, “headlong rush of wolves” installation, “sunken […]

Basel Week Miami ’09 – Rubell Family Collection – “Beg Borrow and Steal”

Good artists borrow, great artists steal. ~Pablo Picasso Coinciding with Art Basel Miami 2009, the Rubell Family Collection opened their latest exhibition, entitled Beg, Borrow, and Steal.  The exhibition, filling the entire 45,000 sq. ft. museum, consists of 260 works by 74 artists of different generations and examines the role of appropriation throughout modern and contemporary art.  It was born through a series of conversations the Rubells had with artists Kelly Walker and Wade Guyton.  It deals with artistic influence, artists building upon the legacies […]

Behind the Scenes: “Inside Out, Outside In” @ Museu de Arte de São Paulo
