Guest of Cindy Sherman

Cindy Sherman was born in 1954 in New Jersey. She graduated from the Faculty of Art at the State University of New York in Buffalo. She has lived in New York since 1976.

Through her photographs, being staged self-portraits, she questions social norms and cultural habits, schemes related to male-female relationships, and the image of body in the popular culture. Her most acclaimed series of photographs is Untitled Film Stills (1977–1980) – 70 black and white, small format photographs, being currently in the MoMA collection, of the artist herself enacting fictional scenes from Hollywood films from the 1940s and 1950s. Other works by Sherman include series: Fashion Photos (1988–1990), where she tackles with stereotypes of womanhood; Disaster (1985–1989), whose main theme is the image of body; and Clowns (2004), using the motif of a mask and a costume.
