4 July 2009 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Paul H-O made a minor name for himself in the Manhattan art world during the 1990s by co-hosting a cable public access show called Gallery Beat. His show provided him the opportunity to meet photographer-artist Cindy Sherman, one of the most talented and important American artists of the post-pop art era. Guest of Cindy Sherman examines the ups--but mostly downs--of their five-year relationship, in which Paul found himself disappearing in the shadow of his famous girlfriend. Fans of Sherman will be thrilled at the opportunity to see much candid footage of the artist; others will be intrigued by H-O's tale of relegation to second-class citizenship.
