Cindy Sherman: Imitation of Life
From fairytale characters to centerfold models, historical figures to clowns, Cindy Sherman tackles popular tropes in her photography and dismantles the stereotypes surrounding the roles she embodies. The Broad is proud to hold the largest collection of Sherman’s photography. This book and the accompanying exhibition—titled after Douglas Sirk’s 1959 film Imitation of Life—draws from those photographs to chronicle her work from the standpoint of cinema, tracing how such a reading can impact the critical discourse around her photographs. Written by Philipp Kaiser.
