Cindy’s in the Centerfold

Recently at the MoMA’s Cindy Sherman show, the ‘Untitled Film Stills’ room was impassable (Cindy Sherman has groupies? Apparently.) So I was happy to spend some time with her later, lesser-known works – particularly her Centerfolds series. Commissioned by Artforum but never featured, they’re a re-interpretation of the kinds of images seen in other magazines – but awkward, embarassing, hinting at the kinds of scenes you would get from real women in a centerfold situation. Uncomfortable, but fascinating. Not going to make it to MoMA by June 11th? There’s a book, too.
