Cindy Sherman – Untitled Horrors

From 6 June to 14 September 2014 there will be an exhibition at the Kunsthaus Zürich that is sure to attract great interest. The work of Cindy Sherman is exhibited at many important museums and is now being acknowledged in Zurich for the first time with a major solo exhibition. Born in 1954, the American artist is known for her deconstruction of gender roles. Sherman slips into different roles in front of the camera. She uses exaggeration as a stylistic device to reveal the extent to which identity and femininity are attributions.

At the heart of the retrospective ’Cindy Sherman – Untitled Horrors’ is the grotesque, the shocking in her work, from the earliest days through to most recent times. These only rarely shown early works are receiving a comprehensive presentation in the exhibition, enabling visitors to see and appreciate the oeuvre of Cindy Sherman in its full breadth.
