New York based artist Cindy Sherman will be showcasing her new body of work at the at Hauser & Wirth’s Wooster Street location in New York City from the 18th of January, 2024.
Sherman’s exhibition features approximately 30 new works. It marks her return to the SoHo district, where she premiered the now iconic Untitled Film Stills at Artists Space in the late 1970s, launching a career that has made her one of today’s most well-known and influential artists. Throughout her career, Sherman has constructed personae using digital manipulation, meditating on the increasingly fractured sense of self in 21st-century society and encapsulating her art in a way that is uniquely hers.
As part of these latest works, Sherman has collaged various elements of her face to compose entirely new characters, using digital manipulation to emphasize layered details and underscore the malleability of the self. To focus simply on the details of the face and head, she has removed all external context, omitting any mise-en-scene.
