This selection of films brings together a trio of works that span Vivienne Dick’s work in New York, Ireland and beyond. The artist will be present for a post-screening Q&A with LUX Scotland Director, Isla Leaver-Yap.
Vivienne Dick was born in Donegal in 1950 and studied at University College, Dublin. Between 1977 and 1982 she lived in New York, as part of a group of filmmakers whose affiliation to the music and aesthetic of punk became known as ‘No Wave’. Working mainly on Super-8, Dick’s films from this period feature many musicians from the New York punk movement, with performances and music from Lydia Lunch, James Chance, Pat Place, Adele Bertei, and Ikue Mori.
Dick returned to Ireland in 1982 and then to London in 1985, where she was a member of The London Filmmakers Coop for many years and produced a number of films in 16mm, and in video. She lives in Galway, Ireland, where she teaches and continues to make films.
