Long before the selfie, there was Cindy Sherman, the shape-shifting artist best known for her often grotesque self-portraits.For the first time in 20 years, some of her most influential works are on view at Los Angeles' Broad Museum, focusing on Hollywood's feminine cliches in the city that invented them.The first major exhibition at the Broad since its grand opening last September, 120 pieces created over four decades by Sherman are on view.Broad designed Los Angeles' newest contemporary art museum to house his vast art holdings, including the world's largest collection of Sherman pieces. Sherman sometimes employs the same techniques old Hollywood is known for, including large-scale projections that resemble frozen movie screens, reproduced on entire walls of the Broad.
