II. Crossing views, new selection of works from the Collection
Alongside the retrospective, the Fondation offers a new exhibition from the Collection, “Crossing Views”, a selection of works from the Fondation’s Collection chosen in dialogue with Cindy Sherman herself. Echoing his work, the itinerary, divided into two levels, focuses on the theme of the portrait and its interpretations through different approaches and means: painting, photography, sculpture, video, installation. The exhibition brings together about twenty French and international artists, from different generations and backgrounds, about sixty works, many of which have never before been exhibited at the Fondation.
