Join Miller ICA for a guided tour of the exhibition, Dara Birnbaum: Journey, curated by Elizabeth Chodos. Dara Birnbaum: Journey, is a major survey of Dara Birnbaum’s influential practice. This exhibition reviews the trajectory of Birnbaum’s penetrative interrogations of mass media during a period of time when technological transformations enabled seismic shifts in the mass consumption of information and entertainment. Over the ­past 45 years, Birnbaum’s work has consistently reclaimed power within and against dominant media paradigms that control access to information and transmit encoded ideologies.
