Lynn Hershman’s VertiGhost
December 2017

“Over the years, Alfred Hitchcock’s film Vertigo (1958) has left many artists obsessed, from Chris Marker, who dedicated an entire segment of his Sans Soleil (1983) to the thriller, to Douglas Gordon, whose video Feature Film (1999) reuses Bernard Herrmann’s score. Now, Lynn Hershman Leeson (Professor Emerita, Art Studio and Cinema and Digital Media) will address Vertigo with a new project called VertiGhost at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, with works at both the Legion of Honor and the de Young Museum. The project includes a film about Portrait of Carlotta Valdes, the painting that figures prominently in the Hitchcock work, as well as a new work with a component that can be accessed via the internet.
… With VertiGhost, Hershman Leeson addresses the fake painting from the Hitchcock film and ties it to Amedeo Modigliani’s painting Pierre-Edouard Baranowski(ca. 1918), a work at the de Young that has for years been plagued with questions about its authenticity.” — read more in ARTNEWS
