Cindy Sherman’s Stills Show Coincides with Major London Retrospective

An exhibition of Cindy Sherman’s earlier formative works dating from 1975—1980 is now on view at Edinburgh’s photography center, Stills, where it will remain open to the public through October 6. Coinciding with a major solo retrospective of Sherman’s work at the National Portrait Gallery, London, the exhibition was curated by Sebastien Montabonel.

Sherman is known for her self-portraits in which she assumes a number of different identities influenced by art history, TV, magazines, film, and the internet. Considered to be one of the most influential artists of our time, Sherman also became largely admired throughout her career for her explorations of the nature of representation and the construction of the contemporary idea of identity.

Highlights of the presentation at Stills include Doll Clothes (16mm film works made during her time in art school at the State University College at Buffalo), some of her earliest self-portraiture—Untitled (Murder Mystery People)—and Untitled Film Stills, which garnered Sherman her first international recognition
