Cindy Sherman: Early Transformations
THE UNSEEN CINDY SHERMAN: EARLY TRANSFORMATIONS 1975/1976. A slim and scholarly volume featuring 15 black and white illustrations from the Montclair Art Museum 2004 exhibition. Essay by Gail Stavitsky.The Unseen Cindy Sherman, curated by MAM‰۪s Chief Curator Gail Stavitsky, offers a little-known selection of works by this leading contemporary artist. Primarily culled from family collections, the exhibition comprises early photographs and photographic assemblages created by Sherman as a college student, when she had begun to use herself as the subject of staged photographs. These early works vividly illustrate Sherman‰۪s early explorations of the myriad constructions of self and female identities as a young woman, and her interest in challenging conventions of beauty and behavior.
