DescriptionIn 1981 Cindy Sherman (born 1954) was commissioned to contribute a special project to Artforum magazine. Given two facing pages, she chose to explore the pornographic centerfold, creating 12 large-scale horizontal images of herself appearing as various young women , often reclining, in private, melancholic moments of reverie. As Sherman explained, I wanted a man opening up the magazine to sudd enly look at it in expectation of something lascivious and then feel like the violator that they would be.Shermans Centerfolds wer e so provocative that they were never published for fear that they would be misunderstood. In her essay, Gwen Allen, Professor of Ar t History and Director of the School of Art at San Francisco State University, examines one of the most iconic photographs in the se ries, Untitled #96?in which a young woman lies on her back against an orange and yellow vinyl floor, clutching a scrap of newspaper? exploring the production and critical reception of Shermans Centerfolds in relationship to the politics of pornography, gender and representation.
