from the press release Dikeou Pop-Up: Colfax - Summer Hours June-August, open every Friday from 3:00-9:00pm. Intentionally provocative, Lizzi Bougatsos' work solicits an emotional reaction and quite often that reaction is a smile. Her work is described as having "...a sort of girlish, bitchy glee, and as irreverent and unpredictable. However, Bougatsos' recent work is shifting to reflect a shift in consciousness she anticipates for culture" (Dalamangas, ZINGCHAT). This shift for Bougatsos is part of a concerted effort to move away from creating gluttonous artwork towards art that will naturally erode but still be remembered. Bougatsos has exhibited at James Fuentes, Artpace San Antonio, American Fine Arts, 29th São Paulo Biennial, Kenny Schachter Contemporary, The Breeder, and Reena Spauldings. Lizzi has performed at the Whitney Museum, Suzanne Geiss, Issue Project Room, and MoMA PS1. She is the front woman of Gang Gang Dance, a Brooklyn-based experimental band and is currently recording Dikeou Popup: Colfax 312 East Colfax Ave Denver, CO 80213 Open Wednesday to Friday 11:00AM to 5:00PM, or by appointment 303-623-3001 info@dikeoucollection.org
