Vivienne Dick is an internationally-celebrated film-maker and artist and was a key figure of the late 1970s and early 1980s No Wave movement in New York, along with Nan Goldin, Lydia Lunch and many others.
Shot on Super-8, 16mm and video, Dick’s films slip between fiction and documentary, with fragmentary narrative, dislocated imagery and compelling self-reflexive performances.
She had a retrospective exhibition in 2009 in the Crawford Art Gallery in Cork, which was punctuated by a New York. No Wave. Super8 performance night with Julien Dorgere during the Cork Film Festival.
Vivienne Dick also had a retrospective in the Tate Modern in London later the same year.
