Haute 100 LA Update: Jeffrey Deitch to Step Down as MOCA Director


After much speculation, it has finally been announced that Jeffrey Deitch will leave MOCA.

The Board of Trustees of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles made the announcement on July 24th, just hours after the museum director himself informed the board of his decison.

Deitch also confirmed that he will stay on to ensure a smooth transition and the successful completion of MOCA’s $100 million dollar endowment campaign, which is expected to close this fall.

He held the position for three years.

An executive search committee has been formed to appoint a new director, to be led by co-chairs Maria Bell and David Johnson, as well as Joel Wachs.
