Marilyn Minter

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.

FROM THE BOOK
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 whats 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 Im not going to pay attention anymore.

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