Shows at MOMA & The Met
You’ll see women you know in Cindy Sherman’s retrospective at MOMA: your mother, your grandmother, your third cousin. While we’ve all been struck by individual and famous images (the film stills, the dead girl, the countess), Sherman’s compulsion to spend a lifetime reinventing herself for her own lens is an astonishing thing to see in one exhibit. It’s a powerful commentary on women’s roles, gender and class. Hurry up and see it, the show closes on June 11th. (Click here for a preview).

Then head to the Met for a conversation between fashion designers, Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparrelli. Schiaparelli’s outre styles from the 30’s stand up to Prada’s oeuvre (80’s through current collection) and while they approach design from disparate angles, at times you won’t know which is Prada and what is Schiaparelli. For those interested in the history of fashion (is it art? Prada says no), this is a must see. At the Met through August 19th. www.metmuseum.org/exhibitions
