An intriguing double bill taking place in two cities, “Swap Meet: Artpace and the Dikeou Collection” welcomes works from artist, curator, and zingmagazine founder Devon Dikeou’s nonprofit contemporary art space in Denver in exchange for “New Works Now,” an exhibition that will showcase Texas-based Artpace alums in Denver beginning October 4. A former Artpace resident herself, Dikeou handpicked pieces from her collection of 300-plus works to install in the Hudson (Show)Room as well as unexpected corners of the building including the elevator, the rooftop, the administrative offices, and an artist workshop at 513 North Flores. Opening concurrently, the local art collective Más Rudas — comprised of Ruth Buentello, Sarah Castillo, Kristen Gamez, and Mari Hernandez — takes over the Main Avenue windows with “Brown Style,” an installation encompassing photography, video, and painting. Free; 6-8:30pm (exhibition walk-through at 7pm) Thu, Sep 20; Artpace San Antonio, 445 N Main, (210) 212-4900, artpace.org.
