Devon Dikeou is an Austin-based artist, curator, and collector, as well as the editor and publisher of the collaborative curatorial publication zingmagazine, which she founded in 1995. “I have concentrated my artistic efforts in defining the spaces that act as interfaces between the artist, the context of viewing the art gallery/museum/street/magazine-and the collector,” says Dikeou. “The visual means I employ distinctly reiterate or re-enrich Conceptual models in their physical reality, often reinterpreting these models through an autobiographical twist.”
Dikeou received her MFA in 1988 from the School of Visual Arts in New York, New York. She has had many solo exhibitions, including those at Domy Books, Austin, Texas (2010); 179 Canal, New York (2010); artMovingProjects, New York (2008); CANO estudio, Madrid, Spain (2004); and Mamco (Musée d’art moderne et contemporain), Genève, Switzerland (2003). Her recent group exhibitions include Obfuscation, James Fuentes LLC, New York (2010); Re-Accession: For Sale by Owner, The FLAG Art Foundation, New York (2009); and On from Here, Guild & Greyshkul, New York (2009). Dikeou has also participated in numerous art fairs, among them The Independent, New York (2010); NADA Art Fair, Miami, Florida (2010); and Hohenthal und Bergen: Statements, Basel Art Fair 29, Switzerland (1998).
