Marilyn Minter (b. 1948 in Shreveport, Louisiana) is a photographer, video artist,
painter and lecturer at the MFA Department at the School of Visual Arts in New
York. Her early work, which is critical but also occasionally pornographic, drew an
enormous amount of criticism from feminists. From the 1990s onwards, she
developed a hyperrealist style of painting based on her own photographic
templates in which the worlds of glamour and fashion are quoted in a feverishly
obtrusive manner. She staged her first large-scale museum exhibition in San
Francisco in 2005, and since then has been involved in many institutional
exhibitions, including the Deichtorhallen Hamburg (2011), Schirn Kunsthalle
Frankfurt (2012), Louisiana Museum, Denmark (2012), Kunsthaus Zurich (2012), and
she was included in the 2006 Whitney Biennal. Minter's new work is currently on
view at Regen Projects, Los Angeles. This summer, her work will be included in the
exhibition "Riotous Baroque" at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. Minter lives and
works in New York, New York.
