Cindy Sherman, now 61, has created an unmistakable and seminal body of work that broke new ground in photography. Throughout her career she has simultaneously acted as her own actress and photographer, subject and object. And yet her portraits do not represent actual personalities. Instead they paraphrase social and cultural stereotypes with the aim of deconstructing them through the prism of cinema, classical painting, or advertising.The exhibition ‘Cindy Sherman – Works from the Olbricht Collection’ on display at the me Collectors Room Berlin, features 65 photographs by the artist. Including works from almost all periods of her career, the collection provides a remarkable overview of the entire body of work. An enormous inspiration to all those contemplating on portrait photography and selfie culture.
As a result of the high level of interest, the exhibition has now been extended until 28 August 2016. We give away 2×2 tickets, kindly sponsored by me Collectors Room Berlin / Stiftung Olbricht. Simply post the reason why you would love to have the free tickets to #portraitofberlin #me_collectors. We will reach out to the winners by Friday, 01.04.2016.
