Solo Exhibition

Dara Birnbaum Fondazione Prada

Fondazione Prada presents an extensive survey exhibition dedicated to the work of Dara Birnbaum at the Osservatorio, its space located at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan.

Curated by Barbara London, with Valentino Catricalà and Eva Fabbris, the exhibition offers different perspectives to understand the distinguished career of Birnbaum, who consistently has challenged the precepts of art and mass media.

The exhibition comprises a selection of single-channel videos, sound works, multi-channel installations, photographs, and 3-D specialized prints on Plexiglas as realized by the artist from 1975 to 2022. Dara Birnbaum reveals her deep exploration of the cultural intersections of video art, television, and consumer technologies and—among other themes—the gendered biases reflected in the representation of women in popular culture. The exhibition path conceived by the artist for the ground floor and the upper two levels of Osservatorio doesn’t follow a chronological order. However, by employing a carefully selected series of works, it illustrates the wide range of media and artistic languages employed by Birnbaum in her practice and explores the recurrent topics of her ongoing creative work.

The exhibition is accompanied by an illustrated publication in the Quaderni series, published by Fondazione Prada, including an essay by the curator Barbara London and a conversation between Birnbaum and the two associate curators Valentino Catricalà and Eva Fabbris.
