Cindy Sherman (American, b. 1954) is widely recognized as one of the most important and influential contemporary artists of the last 40 years. Throughout her career, Sherman has presented a sustained, eloquent, and provocative exploration of the construction of contemporary identity and the nature of representation, drawn from the unlimited supply of images from movies, TV, magazines, the Internet, and art history. This retrospective survey traces the artist’s career from the mid 1970s to the present, bringing together more than 170 key photographs from a variety of the artist’s acclaimed series, for which she created myriad constructed characters and tableaux. The first comprehensive museum survey of Sherman’s career in the United States since 1997, the exhibition will draw widely from public and private collections, including MoMA’s collection.
