“Marilyn Minter: Paintings from the 80s” at Team Gallery (83 Grand Street New York, NY) 31 March – 30 April 2011.
Opening March 31 6-8 PM
After the 2006 Whitney Biennial Marilyn Minter took the art world by storm, becoming a staple in exhibitions across the globe. This prestige comes after nearly thirty-years exhibiting under everyone’s radar. This exhibition – the first of its kind – examines the genesis of Minter’s interest in sex and glamor. Many of these early works are appropriated from photographs of Hollywood starlets of the 50s and pornographic magazines.
