On July 24, MOCA confirmed rumors of Jeffrey Deitch's resignation as director of the contemporary art museum after three tumultuous years. Deitch's departure followed the mass exodus of all the artists on MOCA's board, a group who has since been asked to help select the new director for the museum. For his part, Deitch has plans to return to New York, with rumors of starting up Deitch Projects once again.
