The art world has been waiting with baited breath to see what would become of the downtown NY art scene subsequent to the departure of its prodigal son, Jeffery Deitch. Tomorrow, June 26th, we will soon know what lies in store for the gallerist cum museum director’s brood of artists as many of them cross the threshold of a new exhibition space launched by Deitch’s own Kathy Grayson and Meghan Coleman. The gallery, so appropriately named The Hole, will attempt to fill a void that Deitch left behind when he relocated to LA.

The art world needs this! For more info including the artists exhibiting, a link to Grayson’s blog, and a press release that is unlike any I’ve ever written or read, visit The Hole.
