MARILYN MINTER, MAKE UP BAG
30 cm x 18.5 cm x 7cm (11.8” x 7.2” x 2.7”)
This large makeup bag, from the Pretty/Dirty collection has been adapted from Marilyn's Big Bang, 2012 and while Marilyn admits to hating makeup, she does always wear lipstick saying "Well if you wear lipstick, you don't have to wear makeup, you look like you're wearing a ton of makeup!"
Based on a collaboration between Marilyn Minter, Third Drawer Down and the Brooklyn Museum.
Marilyn Minter’s sensual paintings, photographs, and videos vividly explore complex and contradictory emotions around beauty and the feminine body in American culture. She trains a critical eye on the power of desire, questioning the fashion industry’s commercialization of sex and the body. Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty is the first retrospective of her work.
