OPENING / CINDY SHERMAN / ME COLLECTORS ROOM 

Wednesday 16th September – 6pm until 9pm

Cindy Sherman‘s portraiture has captured the eye of a generation and inspired a small army of copycats, but there is still no substitute for the real thing. Don’t miss a once in a lifetime opportunity to explore the idiosyncratic illusions of an on-camera chameleon and a true master of the photographic arts.
