Crossing views

Parallel to the Cindy Sherman retrospective exhibition, the Fondation presents Crossing Views, a selection of works from the Fondation's Collection which was chosen in collaboration with Cindy Sherman. Echoing her work, the exhibition is centred on the theme of the portrait and its interpretation through different approaches and media: painting, photography, sculpture, video and installation. The exhibition brings together around twenty French and international artists, of different generations and backgrounds. It includes around sixty works, many of which have previously never been on display at the Fondation.
