Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons, and Sarah Charlesworth
The Pictures Generation established unconventional ways of looking at images when the impact of media and consumerist aesthetic vigorously invaded into the collective perspective. Sherrie Levine, Richard Prince, Barbara Kruger, and David Salle were some of the key artists of the movement. Captured in 1991, this picture shows Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons, and Sarah Charlesworth, three leading figures who strikingly subverted our association with images, offering alternative narratives on visual media. Charlesworth, who unexpectedly passed away in 2013, was memorialized with the New Museum’s compelling retrospective Doubleworld in 2015.
