Cindy Sherman at MOMA

I've always been impressed with and enthralled by Cindy Sherman's portraits, and for a couple of decades have considered her among my favorite artists.  She exposes various facets of our social world, particularly gender and beauty ideals, in ways that make the viewer uncomfortable.

The retrospective at the MOMA is wonderful. It is large, but not overwhelming, providing a good sense of each of her important series.  I really enjoyed them all, but my favorites were the centerfold series and the masters series.

I accidentally showed up for their free Fridays, and it was so crowded. I thought about it, and at $25 admission, I'm pretty sure membership is the way to go.
