Pretty / Dirty

Marilyn Minter – Pretty / Dirty exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum in New York is a resounding must see. For over forty years Minter has been a controversial figure in her relationship to art, feminism fashion and celebrity. Some of her pieces are a bit too risqué to include in this post, but the brilliant use of color, perspective, composition, ‘realness’ and imagination in her art is undeniable.
