Deitch Kicks Off Fall Season with Wiley + Auerbach

Back after a bit of a much needed break, and eager for Deitch Projects to jump-start the fall season with two shows we anticipate being equally powerful and vastly different.

Kehinde WileyBlack Light will showcase a series of seventeen new photographs by the artist. While the exhibit offers new insight into a practice that has long been part of his creative process, Black Light is new ground for Wiley, who has become extremely successful for his brightly- colored figurative paintings of modern urban Black males, appropriated into the style of Old Masters and Western portraiture. Wiley’s new photo series is also the subject of a new monograph, published by powerHouse and available now.

Opening the same night is Tauba Auerbach’s Here And Now/And Nowhere. The title, an intentional anagram, reflects Auerbach’s obsession with the collapse of organized systems, and the mingling between the two conflicting states of order and chaos. Expect to see painting, photography, sculpture, and an interactive sound instrument that showcases an artist more interested in mastery of concept than medium.

The gallery will open a thirds exhibition on Sept. 10, at their Long Island City warehouse space. The Open will feature works by 31 emerging artists, including Scott Campell, Abigail DeVille, Keltie Ferris, and  Deitch director, Kathy Grayson.
