With her early work, Cindy Sherman revolutionized the role of the camera in artistic practice and opened the door for generations of artists and critics to rethink photography as a medium. On 27 April 2022, Hauser & Wirth New York will present over a hundred works from Sherman’s most groundbreaking and influential early series – including the Untitled Film Stills, Rear Screen Projections and Centerfolds – in her first major solo exhibition with the gallery. Preferring to work alone, Sherman was not only the photographer, but also took on the role of makeup artist, hairdresser, stylist, and director – casting herself as the star of heavily staged, fictional tableaux. Inspired by depictions of women in television, film, and advertising, her characters explored a range of female stereotypes – femme-fatale, career-girl, housewife, etc. – to confront the nature of identity and representation in the media in a way that still feels fresh and relevant today. Created over forty years ago, these powerful, enigmatic bodies of work are touchstones of contemporary art that continue to inspire and influence the course of art and image-making.
