Miley Cyrus’s art career just got a big bump in the city of doing bumps. She brought her work to Miami Art Basel on Wednesday to a show that was partly organized by art world royalty/court jester Jeffrey Deitch. Cyrus first started showing art earlier this fall on September 11th at 11 Mercer Street. She displayed bongs […]

Imagine my surprise in opening the catalog for “Calligraffiti,” Jeffrey Deitch and Leila Heller’s recently opened graffiti show, to see the front and back inside covers adorned with images of wrongly attributed, graffiti-tagged canvasses that I helped facilitate about 11 years ago. “Michael Anderson’s Studio Visits by the Writers I, (detail) 1983-84,” reads the incorrect description. […]

Jeffrey Deitch is coming back to New York and he’s doing a graffiti show, sort of. It looks interesting. His highly hyped street art exhibit that one time was dampened by a questionable incident *cough BLU cough* and his overall stint as the director of the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art lead to questions regarding his […]

The much-anticipated Jeff Koons retrospective isn’t coming to MoCA as planned for this coming January. Instead, the retrospective will debut at the Whitney in New York in June 2014, then travel to the Centre Pompidou in Paris in October 2014.

As he explained to museum board members, “It’s not you, it’s me.” The art dealer/curator had assumed the position as museum director three years ago (with a five-year […]

The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles have made their first foray into the big, scary world of the internet, creating the “first ever original YouTube channel devoted to contemporary art”. The first incarnation of their brand-new web channel MOCA TV was quietly launched Monday on YouTube, featuring nine videos with artists such as […]

Come on in, and pull yourself up a chair (Like a Gaetano Pesce sofa!) Let the fun begin, it’s time to let down your hair. (Watch out for the custom Chris Johanson!) Jeffrey’s SO excited, ’cause all his friends have been invited (Like neighbor Gus Van Sant!) To go wacky, at Jeffrey’s Los Angeles maaansion! (Fits […]

Guess who took this picture. Yes, you’re right. Trying to kick this Paz de la Huerta habit was easy at first, and then she rubbed her crotch upon Jeffrey Deitch’s pinstripes. What’re you gonna do? […]

So, Marina Abramović just got burned by someone she really respects, all because she’s planning to “humiliate” her performers by laying them nude on and under tables where the elite MOCA Gala attendees can gawk at and fondle them tomorrow. Apparently, it reminds people of Passolini’s sexually sadistic torture epic, Salò. […]
