Deitch Projects gallery director Nicola Vassell has had a busy spring. In addition to coordinating the gallery’s recent Francesco Clemente exhibition and accompanying catalogue, "Francesco Clemente Works 1971-1979," which was on view May 3-June 2, 2007, she also organized the sumptuous 150-person Indian feast to honor the artist. Guests ranged from Charlie Rose and Diane von Furstenberg to Philip Taafe and Adam McEwen. The almost 100 works in the exhibition document the development of Clemente’s creative vision.
