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.
Exhibition opening Friday June 1st at 6pm.
