Cindy Sherman + M·A·C is by far my favorite artist/product collaboration (sorry BMW/Jeff Koons.) Not only are the portraits she made for the campaign so, well Cindy Sherman, but the colors are wonderfully loud, the photographs hilariously satirical, and the company’s ultimate message, for me happily received! Most artist-product collaborations feel like the artist is selling out, but in this case it just feels right. I think it’s because Sherman doesn’t hold back in her cruelty and has spent all of her photographic career disguised as somethingelse.
the entire collection is at MAC from september 29- october 27.
