Cindy Sherman at the Fondation Louis Vuitton
From September 23, 2020 to January 3, 2021, the Fondation Louis Vuitton is hosting the first show dedicated to Cindy Sherman since her 2006 solo exhibition at the Jeu de Paume. Cindy Sherman at Fondation Louis Vuitton (initially scheduled for April 2 to August 31, 2020) brings together some 170 works by the artist produced between 1975 and 2020 more than 300 images from series including Untitled film stills, Rear Screen Projections, Fashion, History Portraits, Disasters, Headshots, Clowns, Society Portraits, Murals, and Flappers, as well as a new set of images presenting male figures and couples. In a scenography designed in close collaboration with Cindy Sherman, this presentation covers her entire career while also focusing on works she has created since the beginning of the last decade, including a series of very recent and previously unseen works.
To coincide with this retrospective, Fondation Louis Vuitton will present Crossing Views a selection of works from its Collection, chosen together with Cindy Sherman. Echoing her work, the installed artworks, spread out over two floors, will be centered on the theme of the portrait and its interpretations across different disciplines and mediums: painting, photography, sculpture, video, installation. The exhibition brings together some 20 French and international artists of different generations and backgrounds through some 60 works, many of which are being shown for the very first time at the Fondation.
