Cindy Sherman - MoMa 2012

Published to accompany the MoMA's 2012 major survey of Cindy Sherman's work, this publication presents approximately 180 of Sherman's photographs from the mid-1970s to the present.

The book is a vivid exploration of Sherman's sustained investigation into the construction of contemporary identity and the nature of representation. The book highlights major bodies of work including her seminal Untitled Film Stills (1977-80); Centerfolds (1981); History Portraits (1989-90); Headshots (2000); and, two recent series on the experience and representation of ageing in the context of contemporary obsessions with youth and status.

An introductory essay by curator Eva Respini provides an overview of Sherman's career, weaving together art historical analysis and discussions of the artists working methods, and a contribution by art historian Johanna Burton offers a critical re-examination of Shermans work in light of her recent series. A conversation between Cindy Sherman and filmmaker John Waters provide an enlightening view into the creative process.
