It’s happening: Jeffrey Deitch will be returning to his Wooster Street gallery space in August. After leaving L.A. MOCA in 2013, Mr. Deitch first returned to New York and began hosting exhibitions at his original gallery space at 76 Grand Street in fall 2015. Now, it looks like he’s in it for the long haul, and 18 Wooster Street’s current tenant, the Swiss Institute, will be relocating so Mr. Deitch can come home.

Pakistan will launch the Lahore Biennale, the country’s first biennial exhibition, in November 2017.
