Cindy Sherman at the MoMA

25 Feb

“Untitled #474” (2008), 'one of Ms. Sherman's photographic society portraits'-www.nytimes.com

“Remorseless, generous, imaginative and shrewd”

These are the words used by New York Times reporter Roberta Smith to describe Cindy Sherman, one of the more revolutionary photographers of her time, capturing feminism in a new light and bringing life to underlying political dilemmas

Her work has progressed through the use of film, portraying women in an array of different roles, portraiture and fashion and at times has even been considered pornographic

Sherman’s art form is truly unique in that it expresses itself as a story line. Moreover, Sherman utilizes her ability to depict a reality in her artwork through a series of fictive-like illustrations

“Untitled #470” (2008) in a gallery of Ms. Sherman's society and clown portraits in the Museum of Modern Art's career survey-www.nytimes.com

As deserved, Sherman’s work is currently on display at the MoMA. However, the New York Times is questioning the efficiency of the exhibition’s current setup. Is Sherman’s work being displayed to it’s optimal potential?

This intriguing article suggests that perhaps the curators responsible for this particular setup did not fully understand the power in Sherman’s deliberate organization of her work

This article offers an interesting perspective on this particular exhibition. Read more about it here

Regardless of the arrangement of this particular exhibit, Sherman is without a doubt an artist worth the museum fee. If you happen to be in the NYC area, give it a go! You can read more about the exhibition online at MoMA.org

Have a lovely weekend! We are looking forward to seeing you all at the Garden City Center Art Festival in just a few short months!
