Cindy Sherman and Bruce Nauman Honored by the National Academy

Cindy Sherman and Bruce Nauman are among the 23 visual artists and architects honored by the National Academy in New York City. For the first time in the institution’s 187-year history, photographers were included in the annual roundup of “Academicians.” Last year the membership categories changed from “Painting, Sculpture, Printmaking and Architecture” to “Visual Arts and Architecture.” This revised designation allowed the inclusion of photographers, videographers and installation artists.

The National Academy was established in 1825 to “promote the fine arts in America through instruction and exhibition,” and includes a museum and art school. As part of the designation, each National Academician contributes a “representative work” to the National Academy’s permanent collection. Visit to see the complete list on honorees.

Sherman’s retrospective at Museum of Modern Art in New York City wrapped up this month and will be on display next at SFMOMA from July 14 to October 7, 2012. After that, the exhibition will move on to the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis from November 3, 2012 to January 27, 2013. Check out our review of the exhibition for more details.
