Roberta Smith 2
the next Roberta Smith article, "A New Boss, and a Jolt of Real-World Expertise" talks about the appointment of Jeffery Deitch as director of MoCA in Los Angeles. As briefly explained in the article people are wary because one of the main trustee's for the MoCA is Eli Broad who's collection is financially tied to Jeffery Deitch. The concern is that by directing the museum Mr. Deitch can effect the value of his own artists and thus the value of Mr. Broad's collection which is primarily composed of artists from the Deitch gallery. It is a slippery slope that can have broad implications on the art market in the years to come.
