Cindy Sherman at Sprüth Magers
A thirty-five year career in photography has established Cindy Sherman as one of the most influential figures in contemporary art. Since the 1970s, she has created photographic portraits that are predicated on themes of identity, gender and role-play. Parodying the representation of women in film and television, fashion magazines, advertising, and online, she adopts limitless guises that illuminate the performative nature of subjectivity and sexuality. Sherman’s exhibition at Sprüth Magers in Berlin marks over three decades and sixteen exhibitions with the gallery. On view is her most recent body of work, created in 2016, and presented here as a complete series for the very first time in Europe. In the large-scale colour portraits, the artist imagines herself as a cast of Divas from the Golden Age of 1920s Hollywood cinema. Who wants to join in to see Cindy Shermans solo show, coming along with A Selection of Works from the Betty and Monte Factor Family Collection by Edward and Nancy Kienholz the coming weeks? The opening was yesterday – thanks for the reminder, Jochen!
