  4. The work is what it is and hopefully it’s seen as feminist work, or feminist-advised work, but I’m not going to go around espousing theoretical bullshit about feminist stuff

    Cindy Sherman / Untitled Film Still
“Sherman made 69 film stills in  the series [Untitled Film Stills] and said that she stopped making them in 1980 when she ran  out of clichés. 69 seems an arbitrary number; she could have surely come  up with a few more, yet how many would a man have made?" [***]
*
“For her the pop-culture image was not a subject (as it had been for  Walker Evans) or raw material (as it had been for Andy Warhol) but a  whole artistic vocabulary, ready-made. Her film stills look and function  just like the real ones—those 8-by-10-inch glossies designed to lure us  into a drama we find all the more compelling because we know it is not  real.[…] In the Untitled Film  Stills there are no Cleopatras, no  ladies on trains, no women of a  certain age. There are, of course, no  men. The sixty-nine solitary  heroines map a particular constellation of  fictional femininity that  took hold in postwar America—the period of  Sherman’s youth […] This exhibition is sponsored by Madonna. ” [MoMA]
