CINDY SHERMAN is the major publication accompanying the National Portrait Gallery exhibition, at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Covering Sherman’s career, from her Untitled Film Stills through History Portraits, Masks, and Flappers, the book reveals the artist’s powerful use of her own face and body to probe identity, appearance and representation. Essays by Erika Balsom, Magda Keaney, Rochelle Steiner and curator Paul Moorhouse also explore the forms Sherman hooks her photographic portraits to, from Old Masters paintings to fashion and pornography.
