Not only is Sherman considered one of the most influential contemporary artists of her time, she’s also a one-woman band, serving as her own model, photographer, prop master, wardrobe, stylist, and makeup artist to create her now-iconic scenes and characters. Chameleon-like, she impersonates—or inhabits—the personalities and likenesses of various feminine tropes (siren, aging socialite, clown) to explore themes such as sexuality and power. This touring exhibit, organized by the Museum of Modern Art in New York City as comprehensive retrospective of her work from her early beginnings in the 1970s through today, is culled from public and private collections, including the DMA’s own.
