Cindy Sherman creates innovative work that explores the place of women in society. With photographs she takes of herself in which she impersonates various fictitious characters, she shows us the numerous roles women play in our world. She depicts woman as house wife, sex symbol, lover, seductress, victim, monster and more; and makes us wonder about our perceptions. Over the past 25 years, she has produced a body of work that depicts the female persona as seen through the filter of the media. Her work has received much acclaim and has been exhibited and collected widely. This program covers Sherman’s first show of color photographs at Metro Pictures in 1981 and a 2000 show, also at Metro Pictures. Included is a rare 1981 interview with Sherman and recent interviews with Helene Winer, her dealer and Peter Schjeldahl, art critic for The New Yorker magazine.
