"Jeffrey Deitch Takes Hollywood"

One has to wonder when Jeffrey Deitch will have his own television show after watching this video (“Jeffrey Deitch Takes Hollywood”) on Nowness. If he hasn’t been approached already, it will probably happen soon. A former fixture of the downtown art scene in New York, Deitch has fully embraced the LA lifestyle and the glamour of old Hollywood. He boastfully notes that Carey Grant once lived in the Spanish revival house he now calls home. As he walks us through the empty house he occasionally stops, and like a guide on an art walk, gives us information on a particular piece. Furniture is secondary, aside from the flourishes of the details from the interior, this might as well be a gallery. Deitch has always been a ringleader and a showman, now with Hollywood as his playground it will be interesting to see how he’ll merge the art world with the celebrity world.
