Deitch Projects

Deitch Projects Deitch Projects is a contemporary art gallery in New York City founded by Jeffrey Deitch. Deitch Projects has a gallery and project space at 76 Grand Street and 18 Wooster Street in SoHo, and previously an additional in Long Island City.HistoryFrom 1988 to 1996, Jeffrey Deitch had been a private dealer and art adviser to a number of collectors.Since opening with a performance by Vanessa Beecroft in February 1996, Deitch Projects has presented nearly one hundred and eighteen solo exhibitions and projects, ten thematic exhibitions, and a few public events.

It is known as a gallery where many of the most well-known artists of the past decade—Cecily Brown, Inka Essenhigh, Barry McGee, Swoon and Kristin Baker to name a few—began their careers.In 2009, artists Justin Lowe and Jonah Freeman transformed the gallery into a Gothic warren of rooms populated with gurgling beakers and melting toilets for a piece called Black Acid Co-op. That same year, Deitch Projects and Goldman Properties organized the ambitious public project The Wynwood Walls, for which 15 artists created 11 permanent murals throughout Miami's Wynwood district.In addition to its projects with emerging artists, the gallery actively produced exhibitions and books with more established artists who have been part of Jeffrey Deitch's circle since the mid-1970s and early 1980s. In 2007, the gallery produced a book and exhibition on Jean-Michel Basquiat's work in the transitional year of 1981, when he went from working on street to working in the studio. The gallery also represented the estate of late artist Keith Haring, with whom Deitch worked closely in the 1980s.
