Joshua Shirkey, curatorial associate, painting and sculpture, SFMOMA

Minter’s paintings and photographs evoke images ranging from fashion advertising to pornography. In this slide lecture and discussion, exhibition curator Shirkey addresses Minter’s investigation of the ambiguous nature of glamour, as well as her work’s art historical predecessors, including Surrealism, Pop art, 1970s feminist art, and the so-called bad girl art of the 1990s.
