> DESCRIPTION

One of the most influential artists of our time, Cindy Sherman creates provocative artworks that explore wide-ranging issues of identity and representation. Working as her own model, she deftly transforms her appearance using wigs, costumes, makeup, prosthetics, and props to create intriguing tableaux and characters inspired by movies, TV, magazines, and art history. This major retrospective brings together more than 150 artworks made from the mid-1970s to the present, including her groundbreaking Untitled Film Stills (1977-80), which examine stereotypical female roles in film; history portraits (1989-90) made in the manner of old-master paintings; society portraits (2008) that address aging in a youth-obsessed culture; and her most recent work, startlingly larger-than-life photographic murals (2010).
