Cindy Sherman at The Museum of Modern Art


The Museum of Modern Art, New York, presents the exhibition Cindy Sherman, a retrospective tracing the groundbreaking artist's career from the mid-1970s to the present. The exhibition brings together some 170 key photographs from the artist's significant series—including the complete "Untitled Film Stills" (1977–80), centerfolds (1981), and the celebrated history portraits (1988–90)—plus examples from all of her most important bodies of work, ranging from her fashion photography of the early 1980s to the breakthrough sex pictures of 1992 to her 2003–04 clowns and monumental 2008 society portraits. In addition, the exhibition features the American premiere of her 2010 photographic mural, presented outside the entrance to the galleries on the Museum's sixth floor.

Masquerading as a myriad of characters in front of her own camera, Sherman creates invented personas and tableaus that examine the construction of identity, the nature of representation, and the artifice of photography. Her works speak to an increasingly image-saturated world, drawing on the unlimited supply of visual material provided by movies, TV, magazines, the Internet, and art history. To create her photographs, Sherman works unassisted in her studio and assumes multiple roles as photographer, model, art director, make-up artist, hairdresser, and stylist. Whether portraying a career girl or a blond bombshell, a fashion victim or a clown, a French aristocrat or a society lady of a certain age, for over 35 years this relentlessly adventurous artist has created an eloquent and provocative body of work that resonates deeply with our visual culture.

Cindy Sherman will travel to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (July 14–October 7, 2012); Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (November 10, 2012–February 17, 2013); and Dallas Museum of Art (March 17–June 9, 2013).
