"I thought, ‘I want to make a show of really big pictures,’ because you see male artists doing it all the time. They make a picture as big as the entire wall of the gallery. It just seemed like such a big egotistical thing. I thought, ‘I don’t know that many women that really do that…. Damn it, I’m gonna do that—make this really big picture.’"
—Cindy Sherman

Cindy Sherman, currently featured for 100 Artists, is seen here during the installation of her 2008 solo show at Metro Pictures in New York City. This scene is featured in the Art in the Twenty-First Century Season 5 episode, Transformation (2009).
