Vivienne Dick

July 8 – September 21

As part of the R-M222 project featuring contemporary artists of the Donegal Diaspora the Regional Cultural Centre will screen work by Vivienne Dick in Donegal for the first time ever. Vivienne was born in Donegal in 1950 and studied at University College, Dublin. Between 1977 and 1982 she lived in New York, and was part of a group of filmmakers who became known as ‘No Wave’ because of their affiliation to the music and aesthetic of punk.

Vivienne returned to Ireland in 1982 and then went to London in 1985. Her films have been screened at MOMA NYC, The Pompidou Paris, and Reine Sofia, Madrid. Recent retrospectives include the Crawford Cork (2009) and Tate Britain (2010). She is a member of Aosdana and currently lives in Galway where she lectures part time and continues to make films.
