When James Franco recreates Cindy Sherman’s “untitled films stills”
Art as imitation and re-creation: Actor James Franco "reinterprets" Cindy Sherman's self-portraits, famously displaying various scenarios parodying stereotypes of woman. Spoof, or art? Someone at Pace Gallery in New York seems to have found this serious enough to show the works (and that Franco would bring some famous friends along with him on the opening night?). What about Cindy Sherman herself? Apparently she felt flattered, but not so convinced this is actual art.
