Everyone's abuzz about Cindy Sherman - her current retrospective at MoMA was reviewed in the Arts sections of the "New York Times" on February 23rd, she's in the February 27th "New Yorker," and was even mentioned in the "Wall Street Journal" on March 5, in an article by Pia Catton, who admits to being skeptical of Sherman's elevated status in the art world. So it's a good thing that we can all use the online version of MoMA's exhibition to do a reality check. All of the characters in Sherman's photographs are the artist herself, in different guises. Sherman has gone large for the first time in this exhibition - creating larger-than-life, floor-to-ceiling murals for the lofty museum space. Another new thing is her use of Photoshop to digitally alter her features in addition to the tricks of hair and makeup she has always employed. At the website, visitors can view works chronologically or by Gallery. There's also a set of videos, My Favorite Cindy Sherman, that consists of art critics, curators, and other artists commenting on Sherman's work.
