MOCA, Jeffrey Deitch, Street Art exhibition, 2011

Posted from The Citrus Report

It was only a matter of time before Mr Jeffrey Deitch of MOCA to get a major street art retrospective together. And look at who the LA Times uses as a picture to talk about the announcement . . . Mister Cartoon. Not bad.

The show is “Art in the Streets.” Mr Deitch told the LA Times, “”Right now we’re trying to iron out sponsorship. It’s going to be the first major museum survey of the history of graffiti and street art presented in the United States.”

Retna on the cover of the September 2010 Juxtapoz

Posted from The Citrus Report

That is an epic cover. Retna has the cover of the September 2010 issue of Juxtapoz, and everyone in our office is hyped because we all like Retna and remember his great 2007 show at FIFTY24SF Gallery. And Jeffrey Deitch did the introduction to the piece, so definitely a landmark for Retna.

The issue also has a subscriber-only cover of INSA, and interviews with Richard Colman, Allyson Mellberg, INSA, Retna, Pose, and KC Ortiz. Great issue… we read it last night.

Here is the INSA cover.

Saber mentioned in Jeffrey Deitch in interview

“… A lot of the material comes from LA, where we see a big subculture with a lot of skate and street-brand shops. This show is going to connect with that culture, dealing with artists like Saber, who comes out of the graffiti tradition and its logos and silk screens. This will certainly bring a new audience to the museum.” —Jeffrey Deitch, as told to Tim Griffin

Juxtapoz.com posted a conversation from influential gallerist turned MOCA director, Jeffrey Deitch, about his time as a major influencer in NYC and now becoming a major player in Los Angeles. And he is name-dropping Saber as a major piece of the LA puzzle. Smart man.
