Cindy Sherman: Retrospective - Amanda Cruz;Amelia Jones

"By exploring the myriad constructions of female identity and the body in our culture, Sherman imitates and confronts assorted representational stereotypes, becoming for many an icon of the contemporary concerns of feminism and postmodernism."


If you like Cindy Sherman's photographs this is an interesting collection, which includes notes from her work books. This is an artist whose ideas need to be understood before viewing the images, in order to gain a deeper appreciation. I prefer her early B&W film stills.
