A contemporary art collection that is free and open to the public. Operating as an extension of NYC-based zingmagazine, the space features the work of over 35 emerging artists from around the world in the fields of photography, drawing, sculpture, and installation. Open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 11a.m.-5p.m., or by appointment.
In April 2014, we opened an ancillary space located on Colfax Ave and Grant St called the Dikeou Pop-Up: Colfax, located at 312 East Colfax. This temporary space currently features an exhibit by Lizzi Bougatsos, a Brooklyn-based artist who is also the front woman for Gang Gang Dance and IUD. Currently, Lizzi is recording an album with IUD at the MoMA NYC. Plus our extensive Vinyl Archive of over 10k records for you to peruse and listen to on our record players. Open Wednesday, Thursday, 11a.m.-5p.m., and Friday 3p.m.-9p.m.
