Cindy Sherman's Untitled Film Stills are widely regarded as some of the most original and influential work of a whole generation of postwar artists. Her work transcends the boundaries of both conceptual art and photography and has provided a whole new avenue of investigation for artists who have tried to emulate her. So influential have her Untitled Film Stills been that in 1995 the Museum of Modern Art in New York purchased the entire series from the artist in order to preserve the work in its entirety. The Untitled Film Stills have become an example of those rare moments when art has become, at the same time, both a critical comment on modern society and powerful force to change it for the better.
