Exposition virtuelle qui regroupe plus de 170 photographies où l'artiste transformée par du maquillage, des masques et des costumes, incarne différents personnages, notamment une petite fille et un clown, évoquant l'enfance, le divertissement, mais aussi la régression et la monstruosité.
This exhibition surveys Shermans career, from her early experiments as a student in Buffalo in the mid-1970s to a recent large-scale photographic mural, presented here for the first time in the United States. Included are some of the artists groundbreaking worksthe complete Untitled Film Stills (197780) and centerfolds (1981), plus the celebrated history portraits (198890)and examples from her most important series, from her fashion work of the early 1980s to the break-through sex pictures of 1992 to her monumental 2008 society portraits.
Sherman works in series, and each of her bodies of work is self-contained and internally coherent; yet there are themes that have recurred throughout her career. The exhibition showcases the artists individual series and also presents works grouped thematically around such common threads as cinema and performance; horror and the grotesque; myth, carnival, and fairy tales; and gender and class identity.
