vivianmaierweb12  FILM SCREENING
Finding Vivian Maier | 7pm  |  FREE!

A current hot-button issue in contemporary photography and modern art, ownership of Vivan Maier’s estate and work are in acrimonious dispute. This award-winning documentary shuttles from New York to France to Chicago as it traces the intriguing life story of the late Vivian Maier, a career nanny whose previously unknown cache of 100,000 photographs has earned her a posthumous reputation as one of America’s most accomplished and insightful street photographers. The film’s release fueled the dispute between the men whose accidental discovery of her work led to Maier coming to the world’s attention and garnering a posthumous reputation on a par with Henri Cartier-Bresson.
