Dara Birnbaum, Technology/Transformation: Wonder Woman

Dara Birnbaum at Galway Arts Centre in Galway, Ireland

June 1 - July 6, 2018

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.
