For 35 years, Cindy Sherman has been transforming herself into characters and capturing them with her camera. But Sherman does not fall under any one label, which makes her a central figure in critical debate. To some she is a photographer; to others a performance artist. To some her work is feminist; to others, it's quite the opposite. Issues of the male gaze, postmodernism, low art, high art, and self-portraiture, among others, have bounced between scholars as they search for her identity. If anything, this retrospective, organized by Associate Curator of Photography Eva Respini, allows Sherman's photographs speak for themselves.
At the Moma until June 2012
