Highlighting subversive humor, gangster anti-heroes, and spectacles of violence, the Kemper Art Museum presents three films illustrating various aspects of Rosalyn Drexler’s groundbreaking work as an artist and writer. Drexler has often adapted subjects drawn from both classic films and B-movies in her paintings, asking viewers to consider not only the glamorous myths of popular culture’s stereotypes and tropes but also their disturbing underside.
