One of the most celebrated female artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. Cindy Sherman uses makeup, prosthetics, and props to present herself as numerous different people, placed in contexts that draw on the visual conventions of film, television, and the media. These settings and characters invite the viewer to consider how female stereotypes are perpetuated by the media and the art world. In this book, discover some of Sherman’s most important works, from her seminal 1970s series Untitled Film Stills to her progression into color photography in the 1980s series Centerfolds, in addition to her most recent large-scale murals and photographs. Written by Paul Moorhouse.
