The Dikeou Collection pops up for a Denver Arts Week party

Denver's private Dikeou Collection has a permanent gallery space in a downtown Denver office building that's a little hard to find, unless you know your way around the corporate world. As a remedy, the gallery's Devon Dikeou also curates a more accessible ground-floor pop-up space in the Golden Triangle, which opens serendipitously for special events and shows. Tonight from 6 to 8 p.m., the pop-up will pop open for a free Denver Arts Week reception that doubles as a vintage-vinyl dance party.

On the art side, the space will showcase New York-based installation artist E.V. Day, who's known for assemblage work using unusual materials to address issues of gender roles and pop culture. A part of Swap Meet: Artpace and the Dikeou Collection, a gallery exchange with San Antonio's Artpace, Day's show will remain on view in the space through December 30; the rest of the art exchange can be seen simultaneously at the downtown location. Following is a short introduction to Day and her work.

As for the party, it's the public debut of another side of the Dikeou Collection: its sprawling, eclectic, meticulously catalogued trove of vinyl records, which, in the hands of spin-sters Jeremy "Sinistarr" Howard and Dave Wilkinson of Wax Trax, will provide entertainment and wonder. Don't be afraid to make a request! Refreshments and a food truck will also be on hand. Admission is free; find more information on the Facebook event page .
