Cindy Sherman was born in 1954. She began her "Film Stills" series at the age of 23, gaining early recognition, and has followed it with remarkable experiments in color photography. Her art has won her wide recognition and praise, and been collected and exhibited by major museums throughout the world since 1980--key early shows included a first survey at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, in 1982 and a retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1987. Sherman is the recipient of a MacArthur Foundation "genius" award, a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, and the Guild Hall Academy of the Arts Lifetime Achievement Award for Visual Arts.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What a great find. I just stumbled across this book a few days ago and it's going right on my shelf next to THE DOWNTOWN BOOK: THE NY ART STORY 1974-1984, and SO80s by Patrick McMullan. These three will give you a great summary of the East Village and SOHO art/music scene in the late 70s and early 80s. This brief period in NY was every bit as fascinating as that of the Abstract Expressionists in the 1940s and 50s, or The Factory and the Pop artists in the 1960s. That time is long gone, but it is invigorating to see John Sex, the Squat Theatre, the Alien Comic, z'ev (!) and other old NY favorites again. NEW YORK NOISE is filled with great photos and the reminiscences of many of the people who created the scene. There is always more to be written about though - 8BC, Pizza-A-Go-Go, Polyrock, Richard Hambleton, and the Speedies. We need someone to bring out a compilation from the archives of The SOHO Weekly News for some more first-hand documentation. There's still plenty of material out there for all you writers and memoirists to tackle.
