Born in 1954 in Glen Ridge, New Jersey, Cindy Sherman is counted among the most influential artists of the last half-century. Upon graduating from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1976, Sherman relocated to New York City where she began making the seminal Untitled Film Stills. She has gone on to photograph and cast herself in various roles through her masterful use of costume, setting and pose.
Cindy Sherman has had one-person exhibitions at institutions that include: Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin (2007); Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Copenhagen (2007); Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria (2006/07)); Jeu de Paume, Paris (2006); Kestnergesellschaft, Hanover, Germany (2004); Serpentine Gallery, London (2003); Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (1997); Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (1997); Museum of Modern Art, New York (1997); Museum Boijmans-van Beuningen, Rotterdam (1996); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid (1996); and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1987). Sherman has most recently participated in major group shows and biennials such as: ILLUMInations, 54th Venice Biennale (2011); 10,000 Lives, Gwangju Biennale, South Korea (2010); Skin Fruit: Selections from the Dakis Joannou Collection, New Museum, New York (2010); Mapping the Studio: Artists from the François Pinault Collection, Punta della Dogana, Venice (2009/10); and The Pictures Generation: 1974-1984, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (2009).
Accompanying the first major survey of Cindy Sherman’s work in the United States in nearly 15 years—curated by Eva Respini for the Museum of Modern Art, New York— this publication showcases approximately 180 photographs from the mid-1970s to the present. Respini provides an overview of Sherman’s career and Johanna Burton offers a critical re-examination of Sherman’s work in light of her recent series. A conversation between Cindy Sherman and filmmaker John Waters provides an enlightening view into the creative process.
Edited by Gabriele Schor and Cindy Sherman.
