#TBT: Cindy Sherman’s “Untitled Film Stills” (1977-1980)

In fall 1977, Cindy Sherman began making pictures that would eventually become her groundbreaking “Untitled Film Stills.” Over three years, the series (presented here in its entirety) grew to comprise a total of seventy black-and-white photographs.

It was my first time attending Photoville this year.  The “village of freight containers transformed into temporary exhibition spaces” first popped-up on Brooklyn’s waterfront in summer, 2012. At first glance it doesn’t look like much:  white metal containers, gravel, white tents, concrete blocks holding things down, wind-strewn vinyl signs and lots and lots of magnets.  Yet, […]
