Cindy Sherman by Eva Respini( Book )

19 editions published in 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,065 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cindy Sherman is one of the most influential and consistently original artists of our time. Masquerading as a myriad of characters in front of her own camera, Sherman creates invented personas and provocative tableaus that examine the construction of identity and the nature of representation. Her works speak to our increasingly image-saturated world, drawing on the unlimited supply of visual material provided by the mass media, pop culture, and art history. Whether portraying a career girl or a blond bombshell, a fashion victim or a clown, a French aristocrat or a society lady of a certain age, Sherman's work has always had the ability to reflect the ideas of the culture at large and to resonate with a wide audience. Cindy Sherman presents the most up-to-date overview of her groundbreaking career, from the mid-1970s to the present, and provides new insight into the work of this relentlessly innovative artist."--Publisher's website

Cindy Sherman, 1975-1993 by Rosalind E Krauss( Book )

16 editions published in 1993 in German and English and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this first presentation of the artist's complete work, leading contemporary art historian Rosalind Krauss reviews Cindy Sherman's remarkable series of photographic works - in which the artist has notoriously assumed various roles, from B-movie starlet to Old Master model - and the enormous influence these works have had on feminist thinking and on current dialogues about the strategies of contemporary art in general. Almost perversely, Krauss argues, Sherman's unsettling attempts to dissect the formation and perception of images have turned her artworks - and herself - into icons for feminists' and others' agendas. Krauss explores in depth the various approaches to Sherman's work taken by philosophers and art historians and asks if they have not often lost sight of the imagery itself - or, more specifically, the way the images are constructed." "In a further essay, Norman Bryson, internationally known for his pioneering theories on the semiotics of looking, explores Sherman's most recent, horror-show images of mannequins (known as the Sex Pictures) and identifies their place in her continued out-of-body investigations. Along with a bibliography and chronology, more than 200 illustrations (140 in color), including numerous unpublished works, represent Sherman's complete career to date."--Jacket

Any ever : Ryan Trecartin by Ryan Trecartin( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ryan Trecartin's movies layer the visual and the aural in virtuosic combinations of color, form, drama, and montage to produce a sublime, stream-of-consciousness effect that feels bewilderingly true to life. This volume includes extended illustrated sections on his seven-part epic Any Ever, 2009, 10, as well as I-Be Area, 2007, and A Family Finds Entertainment. Essays focus on Trecartin's repurposing of language, his open-source approach to personality and gender, and his extended amplifications of consumer culture. An interview with Trecartin provides a glimpse into his collaborative process
The essential Cindy Sherman by Catherine Morris( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cindy Sherman has had a profound influence on the artists of her generation. Alluring and repellent, her hilarious art treats issues of femininity, the role of women in society, sexuality, and the act of making photographs. In Sherman's portrayals of B-grade '50s and '60s Hollywood heroines, fashion models, and subjects from Old Masters paintings, she serves as subject and object of her own work. Sherman's newer work catapults artificial body parts, decapitated dolls, and grisly scenes of violence to the fore. Do you know why: We are so engaged, amused, and horrified by Cindy Sherman's images? Sherman's photographs of herself are not really self-portraits? Sherman's photographs are Rorschachs for the end of the 20th century?

Guest of Cindy Sherman by Paul H-O( Visual )

"Paul H-O became a fixture of the New York art scene in the 1990s with his public access show GalleryBeat. Armed with a video camera, he attended art gallery openings, amusing some with his candid, witty assessments of their work, but also winning many fans. Among the latter was Cindy Sherman, the press-shy artist who is internationally acknowledged as one of the world's most gifted and significant visual talents. Cindy invites Paul to her studio for a series of exclusive interviews and through these videotaped encounters, he gains unprecedented insight into her artistic process and a romantic relationship blossoms. Their initial bliss ends when Paul finds himself wracked with anxiety about his own personality becoming subsumed by his role as Cindy's guest at the celebrity-studded openings and dinners she regularly attends."--Film's website

Untitled film stills by Cindy Sherman( Book )

26 editions published between 1990 and 1998 in 4 languages and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present volume introduces the early work of the artist : forty black-and-white photographs from the late 1970s, laconically referred to as the "Untitled Film Stills". With them, Cindy Sherman demonstrates that the genre of the film still is the paragon of popular culture. The images, with which everyone is familiar from movie theatres, tell several stories simultaneously : their own, as an individual photograph and as part of a series, that of the particular film and its actors and that of the public and its expectations.
Cindy Sherman by Cindy Sherman( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The principle theme in Cindy Sherman's oeuvre is the staging of female role models. The American artist relies on stereotypes inscribed in our collective visual memory in a world saturated with media. In this perfect role-play with costumes, masks, and prostheses, during which her own identity nearly completely disappears, in her photographs Sherman walks a fine line between staging and parody in her scrutiny of clichés and fears. The artist became well known for her multipart photo series called 'Untitled Film Stills,' in which she embodies female characters from fictitious movie scenes from the fifties. Her artistic principle has essentially not changed much since. In her later series with large-format colour photographs, Cindy Sherman takes up themes such as, for example, fashion photography, fairytale figures, horror scenes, and high-society ladies

The Cindy Sherman effect : Identität und Transformation in der zeitgenössischen Kunst( Book )

2 editions published in 2020 in German and English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seit den 1970er Jahren sorgt Cindy Sherman (geb. 1954 in Glen Ridge, New Jersey) mit ihren photographischen Selbstinszenierungen für Aufsehen in der Kunstszene. Ihren Aufstieg zur international gefeierten Künstlerin, der mit den berühmten Untitled Film Stills (1977-1980) einsetzte, hat Schirmer/Mosel von Anfang an begleitet: 1982 erschien bei uns die erste von bisher acht Publikationen zu ihrem Werk. Bis heute haben weder die Themen, die sie aufgreift, noch die Art und Weise der künstlerischen Umsetzung - als Regisseurin, Photographin und Darstellerin ihrer Motive - an Aktualität verloren. Im Gegenteil: ihre vielschichtige Auseinandersetzung mit Fragen der Identität und gesellschaftlichen Klischees stößt in Zeiten der immer öffentlicher ausgetragenen Gender- und Transgender-Debatten auf umso größere Resonanz. Das Kunstforum Wien geht unter dem Titel "The Cindy Sherman Effect" erstmals dem Einfluss nach, den Shermans Werk, das in der Ausstellung mit Beispielen aus allen ihren Serien prominent vertreten ist, auf die Arbeiten jüngerer Künstler/innen hatte und noch hat - darunter Sophie Calle, Pipilotti Rist, Sarah Lucas, Gillian Wearing, Candice Breitz, Zanele Muholi, Markus Schinwald, Douglas Gordon, Samuel Fosso und viele andere mehr
