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.

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.
