Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty features over 25 paintings made between 1976 and 2013, three video works and several photographs that explore culture’s complex relationship to beauty and the feminine body. The exhibition is organized by time period, demonstrating the depth of Minter’s critical examination, which predominantly focuses on fashion, beauty and celebrity culture. Pretty/Dirty illustrates Minter’s evolution from a young critic, documenting domestic life, to an established media savvy cultural producer. Her provocative images ultimately urge us to take a hard look at our fantasies, values and desires.
