Vivian Maier Through a Critical Lens

Des Moines Art Center


This exhibition features 70 photographs (50 black-and-white and 20 colour prints) of people encountered on the streets of New York City and Chicago by the late photographer Vivian Maier (1926 – 2009). Maier’s photographs, created between the late 1940s and the early 1980s, were kept completely private by the artist and caused a stir when they were first exhibited at the Chicago Cultural Center in 2011. Elusive, solitary, and clearly talented, Vivian Maier is the quintessential ‘undiscovered’ artist of our time. Read more.
