Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty

Marilyn Minter is well known for her glossy, hyper-realistic paintings, photographs and video-works: seductive images that borrow the language of fashion and advertising photography, exploring the boundaries of desire, sensuality, and body-anxiety in the age of consumption. Close up images of mouths, feet, splashes and puddles, rendered in high gloss enamel on sheets of metal, seem to emanate from their surfaces and question the pathology of glamour.

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.
