14 July - 8 October 2012
One of the most influential artists of our time, Cindy Sherman creates provocative artworks that explore wide-ranging issues of identity and representation. Working as her own model, she deftly transforms her appearance using wigs, costumes, makeup, prosthetics, and props to create intriguing tableaux and characters inspired by movies, TV, magazines, and art history. The first major exhibition of Sherman's work ever presented in San Francisco, this retrospective brings together more than 150 photographs made from the mid-1970s to the present.
