Vivienne Dick (born 1950) is an Irish feminist experimental and documentary filmmaker. Her 2014 fllm, The Irreducible Difference of the Other, acknowledges her longstanding interest in Luce Irigaray. Her early films helped define the No Wave scene. According to The Irish Times, "one of the most important film-makers Ireland has produced".[1]

Dick was born in Donegal and grew up in Ireland during the 1950s, attending University College Dublin there in the 1960s. She emigrated to the United States in the 1970s. Upon her arrival in the U.S., Dick became an integral figure in No Wave film culture and produced a series of seminal Super8 short films. Living in New York, which was undergoing a recession and an inexpensive place to live, many of her films were staged around well-known sites such as Coney Island, the Statue of Liberty, and the World Trade Center. The films featured punk performers such as Lydia Lunch, Pat Place (of the band Bush Tetras) and Adele Bertei (of The Contortions). Film critic and author J. Hoberman has called Dick the "quintessential No Wave filmmaker".[2]

Dick currently teaches filmmaking at Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology.[3]

In 1982 Dick moved to Ireland, and then to London where she continued making films. Today she lives in Galway.

Her work is examined in the 2010 documentary Blank City, which discusses the No Wave movement. She is referenced by the feminist dance-punk group, Le Tigre, in their song "Hot Topic."

Dick's work formed part of two major retrospectives of American avant garde film: No Wave Cinema 1978-87 (1996) at the Whitney Museum, New York and Big as Life: An American History of Super8 Film (1999) at the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Vivienne's work was the subject of a retrospective at the Crawford Arts Centre, curated by Treasa O'Brian[4] in 2009, with an accompanying monograph co-published by the Crawford Arts Centre and the LUX Tate Modern, London in late 2010. It included a collection of her remarkable films and included a performance by Lydia Lunch as well as discussions with Nan Goldin, Claire Pajaczkowska and Maeve Connolly, as well as films by other artists selected by Dick.
