Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art

(GOMA) presents an exhibition

of more than 50 large-scale works

by American photographer Cindy

Sherman from 28 May to 3 October.

Photographs are drawn from public

and private collections, including a new

body of work created this year and on

show for the first time in the Southern Hemisphere.

Sherman became famous for posing as the characters in her

photographs, using makeup, costumes, prosthetics and later, digital

techniques, to enhance or exaggerate the features of her ‘subjects’.

Sherman’s works reference film, fashion, society stereotypes

and contemporary culture and GOMA’s exhibition features some

of Sherman’s iconic series, including her five-metre tall society

portraits, her Balenciaga-themed collection (

Untitled

#458 2007-08

) commissioned by

Vogue

and her garish clowns. Tickets

$15 adult. For more information see
