Cindy Sherman at the MoMA
Last spring I tagged along on my wife's business trip to Manhattan. I walked over to the MoMA and enjoyed the exhibit on the abstract expressionists. Beth can't attend a similar meeting this spring, so I'll miss the Cindy Sherman photographs discussed in this article: http://www.economist.com/node/21548143?fsrc=scn/tw/te/ar/mistressofselfeffacement Years ago, struggling with the culture shock of moving from the east coast to a very rural part of Illinois, I enjoyed purchasing art magazines at the nearest book store (a half-hour away), and one was an Art in America feature on Sherman and her self-portraits which are not, in fact, about her own self.
