Event Details

The Des Moines Art Center is excited to showcase a brilliant array of feminist works created by five artists featured in our Images Unbound exhibition. This free event includes shorts by Anna Gaskell, Carrie Mae Weems, and Martha Rosler, as well as the 1997 feature length cult classic horror film “Office Killer” directed by photographer Cindy Sherman. See how the fantasy of film provides a creative way for female voices to be heard and to fight back. This is an event you will not want to miss!
