An artist and a pioneer of photography: CINDY SHERMAN. Her EARLY WORKS are now on show at #Gucci Museum, #Florence
Florence, Italy - Gucci Museo is pleased to announce Cindy Sherman : Early Works as the third contemporary art exhibition of works organised thanks to M. François Pinault . Curated by Francesca Amfitheatrof . Cindy Sherman is a pioneer of photography as an art form. Working alone acting both as actor and director, she portrays characters using herself as the object and with the use of makeup and clothes she literarily transforms herself into the subjects whose life story she explores. Following her graduation in 1976 whilst living in Buffalo, Sherman, together with a group of artists, created an artist space called Hallwalls. In a period spanning one year this enterprising and tight-knit group created works and organised numerous exhibitions. We are delighted to be showing three bodies of work from these immensely important and formative years.
