SOLD OUT – NEW YORK | Curator and Artist-led Tour of "Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty" at the Brooklyn Museum

Date(s): February 23, 2017

Time: 6:30 PM  EST - 8:30 PM  EST

200 Eastern Parkway Brooklyn, New York 11238-6052



Join ArtTable for a tour of Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty with Marilyn Minter and Catherine Morris, the Sackler Family Curator for the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.
New York–based artist Marilyn Minter creates paintings, photographs, and videos that explore complex and contradictory emotions around beauty and the feminine body in American culture. Her dynamic work questions the fashion industry’s commercialization of sex and the body.
Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty is the first retrospective of the artist’s work. Spanning more than four decades, the exhibition begins with the artist’s earliest artworks, from 1969 through 1986, including rarely exhibited photographs as well as paintings incorporating photorealist and pop art techniques. It continues with works from the late 1980s and 1990s that examine visual pleasure in visceral depictions of food and sex. The exhibition culminates in Minter’s ongoing investigation of how the beauty industry expertly creates and manipulates desire through images.

Thanks to Ingrid Dinter for organizing this program.
