Museum Exhibition Catalogues, Monographs, Artist's Projects, Curatorial Writings and Essays


I know people who are my age--or sometimes younger, even a lot younger--who have decided that they are not going to pay attention to what’s going on around them anymore. Their development as an artist stops. In a way they become a bit like Donald Judd. Almost everything he wrote toward the end of his life was bitter; according to him, the only good art was made by his generation and everything after that sucks. I just want someone to shoot me if I say I’m not going to pay attention anymore.

--Marilyn Minter, excerpted from "Twenty Questions," a project by Matthew Higgs, in Marilyn Minter.

Marilyn Minter: Pretty/DirtyMarilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty

Published by Gregory R. Miller & Co..
Text by Bill Arning, Elissa Auther, Nick Flynn, K8 Hardy, Richard Hell, Colby Keller, Eileen Myles, Jenni Sorkin, Neville Wakefield. Interview by Catherine Morris, Linda Yablonsky.

Marilyn Minter is famed for her glossy, hyper-realistic paintings, photographs and video works—seductive images that borrow the language of fashion and advertising photography, exploring the boundaries of desire, sensuality and body anxiety in the age of consumption. Close-up imagery of mouths, feet, splashes and puddles, rendered in high-gloss enamel on sheets of metal, subversively questions the pathology of glamour. Produced in conjunction with the first major museum retrospective on her work, Pretty/Dirty examines every period of the artist's 40-year career, from her beginnings with the controversial porn paintings, initially rejected by the critical establishment, to her later large-scale photorealistic works. Essays from the exhibition's curators examine the trajectory of Minter's development and her engagement with debates over the representation of the female body. Texts from musicians, artists, writers and curators speak to Minter's wide-ranging influence: reflections from the likes of artist K8 Hardy, musician and author Richard Hell, and poet Eileen Myles, as well as an artist interview with writer Linda Yablonsky. Illustrated with hundreds of full-color reproductions, and with a complete biography and bibliography, Pretty/Dirty charts a new perspective on the career of this exciting and continually evolving artist.
Marilyn Minter (born 1948) has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions, at venues including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 2005, the Center for Contemporary Art, Cincinnati, in 2009 and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland, in 2010. Her video "Green Pink Caviar" was exhibited in the lobby of MoMA for over a year, and was also shown on digital billboards on Sunset Boulevard in LA, and the Creative Time MTV billboard in Times Square, New York.

Marilyn MinterMarilyn Minter

Published by Gregory R. Miller & Co..
Text by Johanna Burton, Matthew Higgs, Mary Heilmann, Sonia Campagnola.

This expanded edition of Gregory R. Miller's hugely successful first-ever monograph on Marilyn Minter from 2007 brings her public up to speed with the inclusion of works created over the past three years, including images from Minter's 2009 video “Green Pink Caviar,” shown in New York's Times Square and featured in Madonna's recent Sticky and Sweet concert tour. Minter's ever-expanding reputation was established during the 1980s, when her work engaged formal aspects of painting as well as subject matter that remain central to her practice today. This publication features work from every period of a career that now spans over 40 years, and reproduces in full color nearly every painting Minter has made, along with a wide selection of her painterly photographs of the last several years. It also includes the seminal and haunting Coral Ridge Towers series of black-and-white photos that Minter took of her mother in 1969. Art historian Johanna Burton contributes a substantial essay that analyzes and elucidates all aspects of Minter's work; her text is complemented by a lengthy conversation between Minter and her friend, painter Mary Heilmann, as well as by “Twenty Questions,” a project assembled by Matthew Higgs to which a wide range of artists, curators, friends and others with a unique connection to Minter have contributed. The design and production of this expanded edition have been superbly realized by the award-winning New York- and Amsterdam-based design studio, COMA. This monograph firmly establishes Minter's important and central position in contemporary art.

Interviews by Mary Heilmann, Matthew Higgs. Text by Johanna Burton.

Marilyn Minter is the first book published about the work of the highly respected and influential contemporary artist Marilyn Minter. This retrospective publication features work from every period of Minter's career spanning nearly forty years. Minter is considered one of today's most important artists. Her perennially expanding reputation was widely established during the 1980s, when her work engaged formal aspects of painting as well as subject matter that remain central to her practice today. This comprehensive book reproduces in full color nearly every painting Minter has made along with a wide selection of her painterly photographs of the last several years. The book also includes the seminal and haunting Coral Ridge Towers series of black-and-white photos Minter took of her mother in 1969. Art historian Johanna Burton contributes a substantial essay that analyzes and elucidates all aspects of Minter's work. Burton's text is complemented by a lengthy "conversation" between Minter and painter and friend Mary Heilmann, as well as by "Twenty Questions," a project assembled by Matthew Higgs and posed by a wide range of artists, curators, friends and others with a unique connection to Minter. The book's concept, design, and production have been vividly realized by the award-winning New York- and Amsterdam-based design studio, COMA. This publication-with its combination of beautiful reproductions of Minter's work, Burton's powerfully argued essay, and revealing interviews-firmly establishes Minter's important and central position in contemporary art history.
