Beginning Friday, November 4 and continuing through April 2, 2017, artist Marilyn Minter’s exhibit Pretty/Dirty– a retrospective examining some of our deepest cultural impulses, compulsions, and fantasies– will be display at the Brooklyn Museum for the final leg of its national tour.
Featuring more than forty-five paintings, three videos, and over a dozen photographs made between 1969 and 2015, Pretty/Dirty explores the evolution of Marilyn Minter’s style and technique. The Brooklyn Museum is the final venue for this touring exhibition.
