Cindy Sherman



MoMA
New York, New York USA

Presenting more than 170 photographs, this retrospective survey traces the American artist’s career from the mid 1970s to the present. Highlighted are in-depth presentations of her key series, including the groundbreaking
‘Untitled Film Stills’, the blackand- white pictures that feature Sherman in stereotypical female roles inspired by 1950s and 60s Hollywood, film noir, and European art-house cinema; her ornate history portraits, in which she poses as aristocrat, clergyman, and milkmaid, in the manner of old master paintings; and her larger-than-life society portraits that address the experience and representation of ageing in the context of the contemporary obsession with youth and status.
