Cindy Sherman at the MoMA

I had the great pleasure of attending the preview vernissage of the Cindy Sherman exhibition, opening tomorrow at the Museum of Modern Art.

With all the favourite Untitled Film Stills, and the grotesque series, renaissance portraiture, to the most recent Italian housewife series – the most charming part of this retrospective is the visual narration of the maturity of her characters.

I had a fond memory revisiting her teenage girl series – a series which I saw for the first time at the Art Gallery of Ontario’s retrospective of her work in 1999, when I was a teenage girl.

Sherman continues to be an icon and a major influencer.
