James Kalm pumps his bike to the Museum of Modern Art to bring viewers a walking tour of the Cindy Sherman retrospective. Sherman is arguably one of the most prominent American artists of her day. In 2011 one of her photos was sold for 3.89 million dollars. She’s been a prominent part of the New York art and fashion scene since the late seventies and is an acknowledged force behind the “Pictures Generation”. This show traces the arch of Sherman’s career from her days as a student in Buffalo, to the latest, large computer assisted photo murals she produced for the entrance to the exhibition galleries. Includes extended excerpts from a discussion of Sherman’s work between organizer Eva Respini and MoMA director Glen Lowery.
