Anyone who’s a fan of New York City’s contemporary art scene knows the name, Jeffrey Deitch. He’s an esteemed curator and art dealer who’s best known for his gallery that operated from 1996 until 2010 called Deitch Projects, where he curated projects such as Post Human and Lives. After shuttering his art gallery, Deitch moved to Los Angeles, where he served as the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) director until 2013. 

His followers were excited when he decided to leave MOCA and return to NYC’s Soho neighborhood. He remains a bold visionary who is always three steps ahead of the competition. The Jeffrey Deitch gallery is located on Wooster Street and is a must-visit for anyone who’s looking for a left-of-center cultural experience. And the best part is that Deitch doesn’t just feature works from Jeffrey Deitch; the gallery also displays works from many other contemporary artists such as Kenny Scharf and Alan Vega.

Current And Upcoming Exhibits

  • Frank Stella: Recent Sculpture (March 8–May 18, 2024 | 18 Wooster Street)

In fact, one of Deitch’s most notable past exhibits as of recent was called Clay Pop. The set was curated by Alia Williams and worked to explore gender, race, and identity issues. Art enthusiasts were amazed, as the exhibit was both familiar and original at the same time. Other past exhibits include Oysterknife by Miles Greenburg, No Good Deed Goes Unpunished by Karon Davis and Feels Good by Austin Lee. If you plan to visit Deitch soon, check out current exhibits such as The House I Live In by Tyler Ballon and Consumer Reports by Pat Philips.

What can you do after visiting Jeffrey Deitch?

If you want to visit more art galleries, I recommend the Eden Gallery, LIK Fine Art Soho or Arcadia Contemporary. If not, you can go to one of the many great restaurants in SoHo. Two of my favorites are Little Prince, Antique Garage and The Dutch, both a few blocks away.
