From April 1 to August 31, 2020, the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris presents two concurrent exhibitions dedicated to influential artist Cindy Sherman: A retrospective (1975 – 2020) and Crossing Views, a selection of works from the Fondation’s Collection chosen in collaboration with Cindy Sherman.
A RETROSPECTIVE (1975 – 2020)
The first exhibition of works by Cindy Sherman to be presented in France in 14 years, the show will consist of 170 works from 1975 to 2020, with more than 300 images. Arranged in a series across the Fondation’s Frank Gehry building, highlights include Untitled Film Stills (1977-1980), Rear Screen Projections (1980-81), Fashion (1983-84), History Portraits (1988-90), Disasters (1986-89), Headshots (2000), Clowns (2004), Society Portraits (2008), Murals (2012), Flappers (2016-18) and a new series with male figures and couples. The exhibition was designed in close collaboration with Cindy Sherman and will cover her entire career, with a focus on pieces produced in the early 2010s, as well as some previously unseen works.
CROSSING VIEWS, a selection of works from the Collection
Parallel to the retrospective, Fondation Louis Vuitton presents Crossing Views, a selection of works from the Fondation’s Collection chosen in collaboration with Cindy Sherman.

It will consist of around sixty works, many of which have previously never been on display at the Fondation.
