Cindy Sherman

The American artist Cindy Sherman (b.1954) is one of the most important American “Appropriation” artists that revolutionized the international contemporary art in the end of the 70ties. These artists borrowed ideas, processes, images or pre-existing objects by exposing them as they are, or by transforming them and re-contextualizing them to give them a new meaning. Cindy Sherman re-enacts feminine stereotypes of art, films, and advertising in photographs in which she stages herself wearing various, often burlesque, disguises. In this exhibition, entitled Cindy Sherman in the Astrup Fearnley Collection will be presented a selection of works from our collection showing her groundbreaking photographs from the late 70ties and the development of her art until these recent years.

In 2018 the Astrup Fearnley Museet’s 25th anniversary is marked by a series of smaller exhibitions of important artists from the Astrup Fearnley Collection.
