Deitch Project's Final Show: Shepard Fairey "May Day"
Jeffrey Deitch closes Deitch Projects with Shepard Fairey's solo exhibition "May Day." The show opens on May 1st, 2010 and runs until May 29th, 2010. The title refers to the multiple meanings of May Day, known as a celebration of spring, International Worker's Day, or a distress call used by pilots, police, and firefighters in emergencies. Fairey's new work includes portraits of artists, musicians, and political activists that he admires.
In conjunction with "May Day," Fairey also wheat pasted the Deitch Wall on Houston and Bowery, available for view now. An OBEY pop-up shop will also open from April 30th, 2010 - May 16th, 2010 at 151 Orchard Street, New York, NY. For those who can't get enough of Shepard Fairey, the after party for the show will be at 88 Palace in Chinatown with performances by A-Trak, Diabetic, and DJ Pube$ (21+ only).
Shepard Fairey is the founder of Studio Number One, a design group based on the belief that art belongs in more places than museums and galleries. Jeffrey Deitch is the newly appointed director of the MOCA in Los Angeles.
