*Video Dialogues is a screening series that focuses one piece in the Dikeou Collection and seeks to expand the conversation around that piece by using videos to explore tangential connections to the artwork. Each screening will feature one hour of video clips assembled from common and unconventional sources and thus serve as an unofficial video conversation about the artwork/artist.

**Close Quarters is a four-month series of exhibitions in private bathrooms. Close Quarters seeks to offer an alternative exhibition strategy, offering an active solution for contemporary dialog.
