CINDY UOMO: Art exhibition “Cindy Sherman: Early Works” will be unveiled at the Gucci Museo in Florence on Jan. 10, during men’s international trade show Pitti Uomo. The exhibit, to run until June 9, is curated by Francesca Amfitheatrof.

“Over the years, I have greatly admired Cindy Sherman’s body of work, especially the manner in which she uses feminine instruments to create her characters and her wit,” said Gucci creative director Frida Giannini. “It is an honor to present this exhibition at the Gucci Museo, bringing our visitors her unique style and creativity.”

Using photography as an art form, Sherman works alone, acting both as actor and director, transforming herself and portraying different characters with the use of makeup and clothes.
