Artist Cindy Sherman is still the art world’s reigning queen of selfie-reinvention. She uses her camera to morph into character, although her works are technically not self-portraits.

Is Cindy Sherman using Instagram to make new work?
Her account just mysteriously switched from private to public and it reveals a mix of personal pics along with manipulated images of Sherman herself. Most Instagram pics are about looking good and/or showing off, but in the hands of an artist, it goes deep.

Public or private, for galleries or just us, it’s a treat.
