Cindy Sherman is world renowned for her photographic work that depicts the artist in a range of fabricated characters use digital manipulation, wigs, costume and prosthetics. Sherman was internationally recognised for her work Untitled Film Stills (1977-80) which includes images that emulate the aesthetic of various cinema styles with the artist taking the role of an actress. In the age of social media, Cindy Sherman’s work is as relevant as ever with her thorough critical analysis of modern culture and reality. The exhibition will present 150 images that track the development of Sherman’s career from student to present day, including work never previously displayed to the public. The exhibition will be open at the National Portrait Gallery from 27th June to 15th September and is free to members and patrons of NPG or £18 for non-members.
Alongside the exhibition, there will be a lecture delivered by Paul Moorhouse, curator of the Cindy Sherman exhibition. Paul will discuss origins, development and meaning of Sherman’s distinctive art.
