New York, 5 December 2011, Art Media Agency (AMA).

Suzanne Geiss Company has just opened a space in Soho, New York, where the former Dietch Projects gallery was situated.

Suzanne Greiss has been the executive director of Deitch Projects gallery from 1997, up until the gallery closed last year, when its creator Jeffrey Deitch was appointed chairman at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art. Throughout these twelve years, Suzanne Geiss represented works by Keith Haring and artists, such as Vanessa Beecroft and Kristin Baker. She also organised the first retrospective dedicated to Stephen Sprouse and supervised the program of the Deitch Projects gallery.

Suzanne Geiss created her own gallery at the end of last year, coinciding with the Art Basel Miami Beach event, before moving to the New York space, on 76 Grand Street. The gallery is dedicated to multidisciplinary contemporary art, and to renowned or emerging artists. The gallery will open to the public next spring, however spectators can currently visit the gallery only by appointment.

The first exhibition of the Suzanne Greiss Company is entitled, “Cyclops Trannies”, and will be held until 12 February 2012. The show will display the last series of designs by collective, Assume Vivid Astro Focus (Avaf), and is dedicated to the Brazilian New York-based artist, Eli Sudbrack, and his collaborators. In spring, the gallery will present a retrospective on Rammellzee, a major graffiti art figure who passed away last year.
