For over thirty years, Jeffrey Deitch has been a dealer in modern and contemporary art, and an art advisor to private and institutional art collectors. In 1996, Deitch opened Deitch Projects. This space, which will close in May 2010, has produced more than two hundred and fifty projects by contemporary artists. Prior to opening his own art advisory firm in 1988, Deitch was a Vice President of Citibank where he spent nine years developing and managing the bank’s art advisory and art finance businesses. Before joining Citibank, he was the Assistant Director of the John Weber Gallery in New York, as well as a curator at the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, Massachusetts. A 1974 graduate of Wesleyan University, Deitch received an MBA from Harvard Business School in 1978. As an art critic and exhibition curator since the mid-1970s, Deitch has contributed to Art in America, Artforum, Arts, and other publications, and served as the first American editor of Flash Art. In January 2010, Deitch was confirmed as the new director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles,
