Stamps Gallery is proud to pre­mier a new pro­jec­tion work by Stephanie Dink­ins at Detroit’s DLEC­TRIC­ITY fes­ti­val, Sep­tem­ber 24 – 25, 2021 from 7:00 pm – midnight. 

DLEC­TRIC­ITY is free and open to the pub­lic. No reg­is­tra­tion required.

This new work extends into a visual poem and offers glimpses into an Afro-now-ist world Dink­ins has envi­sioned. In this world, Dink­ins illu­mi­nates the power and resilience in black women’s sto­ries, remind­ing us that shar­ing and receiv­ing sto­ries is an act of resistance. 

This pro­jec­tion is part of a major sur­vey of Dink­ins work titled Stephanie Dink­ins: On Love & Data, on view at Stamps Gallery through Octo­ber 23, 2021. Curated by Sri­moyee Mitra.

DLEC­TRIC­ITY is a night­time out­door fes­ti­val of art, light and tech­nol­ogy that show­cases extra­or­di­nary art by emerg­ing and estab­lished artists and cre­ative design pro­fes­sion­als. This out­door fes­ti­val includes over 40 art instal­la­tions and 2 music stages. The fes­ti­val will focus on safe vis­i­tor expe­ri­ences in open spaces through­out Detroit’s Cul­tural Cen­ter and DTE’s Bea­con Park.
