More information

The motif is in the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

Cindy Sherman got her big break in 1980, when she exhibited her first 'Untitled Film Stills' at The Kitchen gallery in New York. This was the start of an international career that has taken her to the very top. Sherman's work has received widespread attention and she has an established place in contemporary art history. Sherman's artistic project, 'Untitled Film Stills', would forever change and shift concepts and ideas in film, feminism and art theory. Using herself as a model, she staged 69 black and white images. By imitating the clichés of female film roles, the series turns concepts inside out. They clearly show the gender stereotypes that are eternally repeated in our popular culture, such as the career woman, the bombshell, the housewife, the student and others. The series was the beginning of Sherman's long and ongoing artistic project.
Cindy Sherman's first work was purchased by the Museum of Modern Art in 1982, when she was only 28 years old. In the same year, she was included in both the Venice Biennale and Documenta 7, attracting enormous attention and making her international breakthrough. In 2012, she was honoured with a major retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and in 2013 the exhibition 'Untitled Horrors' was shown at Moderna Museet in Stockholm.
