Marilyn Minter Pretty/Dirty Catalogue
- $45.00 for Members
Produced in conjunction with the first major museum retrospective of her work, Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty examines every period of the artist's storied 40-year career, from her beginnings, with the controversial "porn paintings" which were initially rejected by the critical establishment, to her later large-scale photorealistic works and her position as one of today's most influential artists.
Major essays from the exhibition's curators, Contemporary Art Museum of Houston Director Bill Arning and Museum of Contemporary Art Denver Curator Elissa Auther, examine the trajectory of Minter's development and her continued engagement with the political debate over representation of the female body. Texts from a wide variety of musicians, artists, writers, and curators speak to Minter's wide-ranging influence and significance: reflections from the likes of artist K8 Hardy, musician and author Richard Hell, and poet Eileen Myles, as well as an artist interview by writer Linda Yablonsky.
Fully illustrated with hundreds of full-color reproductions, and with a complete biography and bibliography, Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty charts a new perspective on the career of this exciting and continually evolving artist.
