Marilyn Minter

Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, 1948.

Lives and works in New York, NY.

Marilyn Minter’s sensual paintings, photographs, and videos vividly explore and expose the 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. Over her long career she has produced stunning and provoking photographs and videos. The most recent photographs, shown at Blique culminate in Minter’s ongoing investigation of how the beauty industry expertly creates and manipulates desire through images.

Minter has been included in more than 20 museum exhibitions including a number of retrospective exhibitions of which the latest and most significant one at Brooklyn Museum in 2018. Her work is included in the following museum collections; Baltimore Museum of Art, Baltimore, MD, Blanton Museum of Fine Arts, Austin, TX, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, NY, Denver Art Museum, Denver, CO, Deutsche Bank, New York, NY, Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, NY, Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY, Kunsthaus Museum, Zurich, Switzerland, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebaek, Denmark, Maison Europeenne de la Photographie, Paris, France, MIT List Visual Arts Center, Boston, MA, Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, La Jolla, CA, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Boston, MA, Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY, Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, CA, Pérez Art Museum Miami, Miami, FL, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA, Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY.
