Dara Birnbaum @ Marian Goodman Gallery

8 November 2018 - 12 January 2019

Bara Birnbaum’s practice is concerned with the lexicon of broadcasting and communication, and the way ‘truths’ are delivered to the viewer.  As an early proponent of video art, Birnbaum began by isolating imagery from television, re-contextualising it in an attempt to understand its true meaning.
For the first time since her major 2009/2010 travelling retrospective, The Dark Matter of Media Light, the three works: Tiananmen Square: Break-In Transmission, 1990, Transmission Tower: Sentinel, 1992 and Hostage, 1994, will be shown together.   These pieces were made in response to major political events in the latter part of the 20th century, as a way to uncover the complex relationship between the media, the events
covered and the way in which those events are presented to the public.
