Cindy Sherman


Sneak a peek behind the masks,
myths, and changing media roles of
women since 1975 with Cindy Sherman.


Acting as her own photographer, model, makeup artist and stylist, Sherman dons masks and changes identities at the drop of a hat (or wig or costume) to create scene-stealing displays that expose the artifice of the everyday.


Explore scrolling timelines of top female game-changers and image-makers—from the Material Girl to the Kardashians, Gloria Steinem to Gaga, Margaret Thatcher to Hillary Clinton and every major milestone of women in media in-between.


Cindy Sherman was born in 1954 in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. The youngest of five children, she grew up in Huntington, Long Island watching lots of television and playing dress-up, eventually graduating to girdles and projectile bras by fourteen, and coming of age in the shadow of Marilyn Monroe (and all the Marilyn Monroe wannabes.) Take a closer look at the details of her life in pictures and words.


Vanity Fair

“Picture the best interactive armchair retrospective you can imagine.”


“Being able to interact with her personal timeline and events of the time is a perfect use of digital technology. So much more fun than a coffee table book. I went through the entire app while commuting to work. What a great use of my morning!”


“This is an amazingly comprehensive retrospective of Cindy Sherman’s work. Once I got over ogling the images and exploring the nifty interface, I realized that the editorial content is of exceptionally high quality. Who wrote all this?! Thank you!

Basically, this is an Art History textbook from the future. I hope many more are coming from Art intelligence.”
