Event details

Fosun Foundation Shanghai presents “Cindy Sherman’s First Solo Exhibition” from 7th November 2018 to 13th January 2019, showing a well-acclaimed collection of the remarkable senior figure of photography in the United States. Bringing together 128 series of photographs and several shooting props along with references spanning different periods, this retrospective survey traces Cindy Sherman’s career from the 1970s to the present day and attempts to explore dominant themes in her visual creation throughout four decades. In conjunction with the exhibition, Cindy has nine world’s first brand new works to unveil to the public. She also custom-designed two pieces of wallpapers for Fosun Foundation Shanghai.
 
 
Untitled #96
 
Sherman’s “Untitled #96” is the most expensive photograph in history, fetching an enormous $3.89 million at auction in 2011. The multi-million-dollar print is part of Sherman’s edition of photos from 1981 and features the artist in a seemingly androgynous appearance and a predominantly orange color scheme. The appearance and use of a secondary color scheme reflect the blurring of traditional gender roles in the period, especially for female artists.
