From the Archive: Marilyn Minter Artist Talk

This program features a conversation between Marilyn Minter and former SFMOMA curatorial associate Joshua Shirkey that was presented on April 21, 2005, in conjunction with the SFMOMA exhibition New Work: Marilyn Minter, the artist’s first solo museum show. Minter and Shirkey discuss the progression of Minter’s work from her early photographs of her mother, who remained steadfast in maintaining her beauty regimen while in the throes of a debilitating drug addiction, to her lush photorealist paintings that reveal the sweat, dirt, and other imperfections that are normally concealed in depictions of glamour. This closer look at Minter’s oeuvre offers insight into the points of reference, artists, and themes that have informed her practice. The program concludes with a brief question-and-answer session with the audience.
