nº54 / CINDY SHERMAN / FONDATION LOUIS VUITTON / PARIS

Following Cindy Sherman's solo exhibition in 2006 at the Jeu de Paume, Paris and 2018 at Sprüth Magers, London, the Fondation Louis Vuitton, on 23 September 2020, opened its doors to the artist’s retrospective "Cindy Sherman at the Fondation Louis Vuitton”.

UNCOMFORTABLE PARODIES AND CROSSING VIEWS


I am always surprised at all the things people read into my photos

Curbed by time and the pandemic’s rolling quarantine, Sherman is eager to return to her regular galleries and museum goings. “I’ve missed seeing art very much. I find looking at it to be informative and inspiring, it helps me to formulate why things work or don’t work.”


If you could, wouldn't you like to return to the past just for a short time? We were settled, happy, people were still reasonably kind to each other and there was no virus turning our lives upside down.


Fall 2020 has many surprises, most significantly in Sherman’s life. Her retrospective at the Fondation Louis Vuitton invites you to Paris from September 2020 to January 2021, to join her in this communal dialogue of self-discovery. Before we walk through the exhibition, for a glimpse, we revisit 2018, Mayfair, London. I am ringing the doorbell at Sprüth Magers.
