Deitch Projects | Los Angeles
Deitch Projects, the New York gallery that Deitch operated from 1996-2010, presented more than two hundred-fifty projects by artists from thirty-three countries. It was a unique organization, more like a private Institute of Contemporary Art than a commercial gallery. In addition to its gallery exhibitions, Deitch Projects was known for its performance program and public events like the Art Parade. The gallery’s program is documented in Live the Art, Fifteen Years of Deitch Projects, published by Rizzoli in 2014.
Deitch closed the gallery to become Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. During his three years at MOCA, he presented fifty exhibitions and projects including The Painting Factory and Art in the Streets, which had the highest attendance in the museum’s history. Deitch also initiated the first museum YouTube channel, MOCAtv.
Deitch has now reestablished his art advisory office and exhibition program in New York. He opened his Los Angeles gallery in September 2018.
