Cindy Sherman Exhibit – Reception

CINDY SHERMAN: Works from the Gerald Mead Collection
Cindy Sherman is an internationally renowned artist whose ground-breaking photographs have interrogated themes around representation and identity in contemporary media for over four decades. Her ties to Western New York include attending Buffalo State College in the mid 1970’s and playing a crucial role in the formation of Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center and CEPA Gallery in Buffalo during her time here. Dr. Gerald Mead, a noted independent curator, artist, and emeriti art educator based in Buffalo, has been collecting and exhibiting work by artists associated with WNY for over 35 years. This exhibition, Cindy Sherman: Works from the Gerald Mead Collection, consists of a brief survey of Cindy Sherman’s works dating from 1978 to 2017 from his collection. Included are works from several significant series of her career such as Untitled Film Stills, Fairy Tales, History Portraits and Instagram.
The exhibit is from Oct 4th – Nov 25th
