Dara Birnbaum Galway Arts Centre
In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change.
Taking its title from Maya Angelou's poem "Still I Rise," the exhibition presents new and existing work in various media from a range of Irish and international artists.
"And still, like dust, I rise" includes Dara Birnbaum’s groundbreaking 1979 video Technology/Transformation: Wonder Woman.
Appropriating imagery from the 1970s TV series Wonder Woman, Birnbaum isolates and repeats the moment of the "real" woman's symbolic transformation into super-hero.
Curator Vivienne Dick is an experimental filmmaker, currently based in Dublin. Recent screenings and exhibitions include 93% Stardust at IMMA.
