Designed and made for the exhibition Cindy Sherman. This major exhibition explores the development of Cindy Sherman’s work from the beginning of her career in the mid-1970s to the present day. Widely regarded as one of the world’s leading contemporary artists, Sherman (b. 1954) manipulates her own appearance by deploying material inspired by a range of cultural sources, including film, advertising, and fashion. For over forty years, she has consistently explored the tension between identity and façade through the creation of characters that she herself assumes in each of the photographs.
