Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty at the Brooklyn Museum

For more than four decades, Marilyn Minter’s sensual paintings, photographs, and videos have vividly questioned the complex, often contradictory perceptions of beauty and the feminine body in mainstream culture. Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty is the artist’s first retrospective, highlighting her technical virtuosity and examination of some of our deepest cultural impulses, compulsions, and fantasies. Now widely considered an iconic feminist artist noted for her brave and bold representations of desire, Minter was criticized in the 1990s for her pornographic and taboo-challenging imagery.
The exhibition is part of A Year of Yes: Reimagining Feminism at the Brooklyn Museum, a yearlong project which celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art through ten diverse exhibitions and an extensive calendar of related public programs.
