The Yes List: 35 Years of Cindy Sherman at MoMA

During her prolific 35-year career, Cindy Sherman has been a Hollywood ingenue, a Boticelli-era Madonna, a Valium-addled housewife, a mad clown, and a murder victim. By turning the camera on herself and reimagining the self-portrait as performance—complete with a set, props, costumes, and makeup—she changed the way we think about photography. For that accomplishment, the 58-year-old artist is being fêted with a career retrospective at MoMA, sure to be one of the most popular and hotly discussed museum shows of 2012. Opens February 26.
