Dikeou Lit: Virginia Woolf
December 1, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Dikeou Collection presents the thirty-fourth edition of the Dikeou Literary Series on Thursday, December 1, at Dikeou Pop-Up: Colfax from 6-8 pm. 20th-century writer Virginia Woolf serves as the themed inspiration for readers J’Lyn Chapman, Vanesha McGee, Sara Slingerland Sheiner, and Rachel Franklin Wood, as well as a short film by Toisha Tucker. The Dikeou Literary Series is organized by Mairead Case and is free and open to the public.
As part of Mid-Career Smear programming, Dikeou Lit: Virginia Woolf takes cues from Devon Dikeou’s installation, BETWEEN THE ACTS (VIRGINIA WOOLF), which comprises replicas of stage curtains seen on popular late-night talk shows hosted by the likes of Johnny Carson, Ed Sullivan, and Jimmy Kimmel. This work speaks to the concept of “in-betweeness” that permeates Dikeou’s art practice, and that of Woolf’s novel, Between the Acts.
