If you want to discover why the Vivian Maier’s street photography work could become relevant for American people, then you should try “Vivian Maier: Through a Critical Lens” exposition at Des Moines Art Centre. Compose by 70 images from the huge collection of negatives discover by John Maloof in 2007 at a local auction house in Chicago. The exhibition narrative is built with people encounters at Chicago and New York streets. Around the expo the art centre has designed a serie of events to discuss and contextualize the legacy of Vivian Maier’s work, “Whose Streets” parallel exhibition rolls this way and it is focus on quality. But also you could join to the conversation and contribute to the debate about… nobody knows if Maier intends to publicly exhibit her work, is it right to promote it now? If so, why?. 



Until January 22, 2017.
