Deanna Dikeman

Waving Goodbye

PRESENTED ON MAR 24, 2015
IN CHICAGO @ UNITED STATES ARTISTS 2014 ARTISTS ASSEMBLY

"I had a new clarity of how midwestern I was, and what the midwest looked like. I got really excited about something that had seemed very ordinary to me."

In Waving Goodbye from United States Artists Assembly in Chicago, artist Deanna Dikeman guides us through her photography, billboard and poster projects. Her unassuming work, while humble is rife with intention and artful curiosity, relatable and resonating. Based in the Midwest, she explores the themes of family, childhood memories, dance, fashion, lost and found, life and death.

Visit www.deannadikeman.com for more of Deana's work and consider supporting her by picking up her book, "27 Good-byes".

This post is back by popular demand. It was "Presentation of the Day" on September 7th and again October 13th.

Pandemonium: The Playful Revolution of Flash Mob Dance

BY JENNA TICO
@ VOL 13 ON FEB 25, 2015

Jenna Tico is a storyteller. Born and raised in Santa Barbara, she made her debut on the Summer Solstice stage in 1993: and in addition to twenty years of collaboration with Solstice—most recently, writing the text for Art Fisher’s parade retrospective—has taught and performed with AXIS Dance Company, Hip Brazil, Panzumo, Fishbon Arts Collaborative, La Boheme, UCSB, Lucidity Festival, and many others. Jenna is a founding member of World Dance for Humanity, the launching pad for countless “Thriller” flash mobs and more than $100,000 of charitable donations at home and abroad. Before graduating from Scripps College in 2012, Jenna was introduced to Contact Improvisation under the watchful eye of Jessica Harris; and in the years since, has danced her way from Bali to Rwanda, inspired by the mind-body connection and the powerful healing it incurs. When she’s not teaching dance at Divinitree Yoga or performing in strange public spaces, Jenna can be found writing grants for the arts, and occasionally frightening the students of Santa Barbara High School by teaching their theatre class.
