This episode we are excited to be joined the pioneering artist and activist Marilyn Minter.
Minter deftly explores American culture’s pathology of glamor through painting, photography, and video works which focus primarily on the female body and its treatment in popular media.
Well known for her meticulous technical mastery, Minter’s details often highlight natural corporeal qualities that are omitted in mass-media depictions of women, such as body hair and stretch marks.
Born in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1948, Minter earned a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Florida at Gainesville and a Master of Fine Arts from Syracuse University before moving to New York in 1976, where she now lives and works.
Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York; the Tate Modern in London; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles; and the Perez Art Museum in Miami - just to name a few.
In addition, Minter is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards, including the Louis Comfort Tiffany Grant, Guggenheim Fellowship, and the National Endowment for the Arts, Artist's Fellowship Grant - among many others.
Marilyn is represented by LGDR, New York, Regen Projects, Los Angeles and Baldwin Gallery, Aspen.
