Deitch Selling Graffiti in a Book

11.11.10 Marina Galperina

To complement his Street Art and Graffiti MoCA Extravaganza coming in April 2011, gone-west curator/critic Jeffrey Deitch is releasing a new book – Art in the Streets. It will feature a long chronology of graffiti and street art that his sort have figured out how to sell, from Jean-Michel Basquiat on, but do we really need another book on graffiti? Will it be on par with some of the movement’s cult classics or merely be a hefty gallery guide? On the book cover: TWIST’s Deitch Wall, appropriately.
