“Completely Punk Rock”: Cindy Sherman’s (Nearly) Forgotten History with Babes in Toyland

Through those conversations, an invitation came to visit Sherman’s SoHo studio to select artwork for use on album covers. “She opened a whole wall of drawers. I don’t know how many dozens we looked at,” she said. “I actually have six or eight photographs she gave me. She scribbled on the back, stuff like ‘This is a little too dark. I’d lighten it up,’ or whatever. Little notes.” Then, laughing, she added, “They’ve literally been in an envelope in a cupboard in my house until a year ago.”

Babes in Toyland drummer Lori Barbero talks about the band’s work with artist Cindy Sherman. I am so nerding out on this.
