Bad At Sports?

. Jeffrey Deitch with Deitch Projects director Nicola Vassell

It is no great revelation to say that Jeffrey Deitch embodies the current trajectory of the art world [read his bio here]. His gallery, Deitch Projects, was opened in 1996 and will close at the end of May, when he moves to Los Angeles to direct the Museum of Contemporary Art – an unexpected but all-around seemingly natural next step. In a fascinating podcast for Bad At Sports, Carlo McCormick interviews Deitch on his time in New York and his outlook on the art market. Go here to listen.

The final show at Deitch Projects, Shepard Fairey's May Day, opens May 1st.
