June-July 1999


The myriad manifestations of Cindy Sherman will be on show at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art from June 4. In a comprehensive 20 year survey of this important contemporary artist’s work, the exhibition lays out the evidence of Sherman’s disturbing investigations into female identity. The exhibition begins with the Untitled Film Stills of the 70s through Centrefolds, Fashion, Disasters, Fairy Tales and History Portraits and includes recent collections—Civil War, Sex Pictures and her current work inspired by surrealist photography and the horror film genre (and hopefully including a screening of her movie Office Killer). This first major retrospective of Cindy Sherman’s work has been jointly organised by the Museums of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and Chicago. The exhibition runs until August 30 and is accompanied by a 220-page illustrated catalogue.
