The controversial artist discusses her career

Editor Pick
Editor Pick

The soon-to-be-subject of a traveling retrospective, the controversial Marilyn Minter is the guest at tonight's free Art in the First Person SVA lecture. Having worked in a variety of media since the 1970's, Minter is best known for her richly-colored photographs and glossy, hyperrealistic, "dirty" paintings of lips, eyes and feet in extreme close-up. She has been featured in numerous exhibits all over the world, and in 2009 she collaborated with international skate/street wear brand Supreme to produce three limited edition skate decks. An artist who has openly embraced sexuality and erotic imagery, Minter's talk is likely to be provocative and should find her delving into her preoccupation with what constitutes glamour and beauty.

The MFA Fine Arts Department reflects the diversity of New York’s many art worlds. Together, the faculty and students form a community of established and emerging artists from many backgrounds who work across disciplines and modes of practice. The department’s main goals are to provide a stimulating and supportive environment in which students can thrive and develop as artists, to foster rigorous critical engagement with contemporary art and other cultural forms and to produce an ongoing conversation, through work as much as through words, about what we make, how we make it and why.
