Cindy Sherman

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.
