Jeffrey Deitch plans his next move

Following his exit as director of Los Angeles' Museum of Contemporary Art, Jeffrey Deitch is planning his next move - a bid to create a hybrid between a museum mounting exhibitions geared to a general audience , and a galley that doesn't have to deal with the complex institutional issues that come with running a non-profit museum. The idea going forward he said is to continue doing big, museum-scale shows but without the institutional constraints.

Deitch is talking to potential collaborators who would help fund his venture, among them AEG, the LA-based entertainment company that has an arts and exhibitions division. He is also looking for a venue in New York for his new venture.
