Exhibition of the week - Cindy Sherman

You'll probably be aware of Cindy Sherman. One of America's most important artistic exports (she was big in the Nineties), Sherman dresses up in wigs, stage make-up and outlandish outfits to replicate everything from on-screen idols to porn stars before photographing herself in character.
