Life After Deitch: Q&A with The Hole’s Kathy Grayson

by Yasha Wallin

When Jeffrey Deitch announced in January that he was closing his legendary Deitch Projects to head up L.A.’s MOCA, a collective shudder rippled through downtown New York. But his staff members were too busy planning their next move to mourn the departure of their overachieving mentor for long. Just one month after the final New York show, Deitch’s former directors Kathy Grayson and Meghan Coleman have emerged with their own gallery, The Hole.

Nestled next to luxury giant Louis Vuitton in the heart of Soho, The Hole—whose name pays homage to the defunct East Village nightclub—is a sprawling work-in-progress. Final touches still being made to the space serve as inspiration for the first exhibit, Not Quite Open for Business, featuring unfinished work by over 20 artists arranged around an installation by Taylor McKimens. I caught up with Grayson to talk about her new undertaking, the community she helped foster and her aspiring role as matchmaker.

What’s the first piece of art you had an emotional reaction to?
The first piece that got through to me was a drawing by Chris Johanson in a 2002 Matthew Marks group show that I stumbled upon. It had a guy in a business suit on all fours with a dogface with a talk bubble, saying “How did I become a fucked-up dog person?” It made me reevaluate my life, as corny as that sounds. It made me change the path I was on because I looked into the future and saw it was going to be a bad trip.

Was opening a space always something you knew you would do after Deitch?
Nope, I never though about doing it. I never quite pictured post-Deitch because it was so fun and so great and things were growing and perpetually interesting, so why leave?

Why Soho?
Anywhere downtown would have been great. [I had] no interest in homogenizing, unpleasant Chelsea. Soho is a beautiful part of town—active, interesting. So is the Lower East Side and Chinatown. I live on Avenue C and 2nd Street so anywhere I could walk would have been okay.

For the rest of the insightful interview click here.

kristen van pattern

Kristen Van Patten is driven by his interest in invention and discovery.  Structure, space, and line make up a vocabulary from which he creates objects, primarily manifested in a modular way. Each piece within the interrelated systems and networks has a specific function and purpose, analogous to a self-reliant habitat responding to stimuli in order to stabilize its self.  His work expresses this relationship with our surroundings. He believes all conscious beings, capable of inflicting drastic change are responsible for being aware of their role in maintaining delicate stabilizations and dissolving threats they may introduce.

Pez_JoshuaBlank_Flier-newsletter

PEZ and Joshua Blank released their original “You Can’t Win” zine during 2001, but went largely un-noticed during that time. Although in retrospect, the immediacy of what they were doing is easily evident. Rediscovering these pioneering artists and bringing them to the public’s attention through these new works is what makes ‘You Can’t Win’ one of the more exciting exhibitions atFIFTY24SF Gallery this year. The show runs from August 6th – August 25th with an opening reception occurring on Friday, August 6th at 7:30PM.
