Anything and everything relating to Cindy Sherman and her artwork: interviews, quotes by and about Cindy, videos, candid shots, exhibition views, and--most importantly--Sherman's masterful photographs. I will do my best to provide a nice mix of both well-known works, and some of her more rare pieces.

Cindy Sherman - Untitled, 1979
I found this in the files of my school’s library. I’d never seen it before, but it was part of an exhibit at Artists Space in 1993 called “Activated Walls.” That is all the information I’ve found, so far.
After perusing the Hallwalls website, it seems I’ve found an outtake from the Untitled Film Stills! Cindy Sherman exhibited the image in 1979, but it has since been removed from the set. A similar photo still remains part of the series, though—Untitled Film Still #28.
Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills, as seen in a 1978 group show at Artists Space, as well as her first solo show at Hallwalls the following year. I always find it interesting to see early installation shots of the Film Stills. In the beginning, Sherman would usually hang them with push pins. After all, she never really intended for them to become such commodities; she wanted them to seem a bit cheap and ephemeral.
