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.
