Regen Projects is pleased to announce an exhibition of works by New York artist, Marilyn Minter. For her second show at the gallery, Minter will debut five monumental paintings. Accompanying this body of work will be Minter's
earliest black and white photographic series. Taken in 1969, these
photos of her drug-addicted mother set the stage for Minter's
career-long exploration of the pathology of glamour.
Three years in the making, these new large-scale paintings deepen Minter's
investigation of how we communicate with the illusion of glamour via
advertising in public spaces. Cracked glass, swaths of vibrant
graffiti, and dripping water confront the viewer and obscure Minter's archetypal images of stiletto heels and eyes caked with makeup. Meticulously painted in Minter's
signature style, the paintings are constructed using many translucent
layers of enamel paint, creating an image that at once crystallizes and
dissolves for the viewer.
Marilyn Minter has exhibited extensively in solo and group
exhibitions at museums internationally. These include the Museum of
Modern Art, New York, NY; Fotomuseum, Winterthur, Switzerland; The
Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, OH; The Museum of Contemporary
Art, Cleveland, OH; La Conservera, Murcia, Spain; San Francisco Museum
of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA; Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego,
CA; The 2006 Whitney Biennial, New York, NY. A large solo exhibition of
her work opened at the Deichtorhallen, Hamburg, Germany on April 29
2011. Recently her work was exhibited in Riotous Baroque, originating at
the Kunsthalle Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland and traveling to the
Guggenheim Bilbao, Bilbao, Spain. An upcoming solo museum exhibition
will open in 2015 and tour numerous venues, yet to be announced.
Monographs of Minter's work include Marilyn Minter published by Gregory Miller, 2010 and Marilyn Minter published in conjunction with her exhibition at La Conservera also in 2010.
An opening reception for Marilyn Minter will take place on
Saturday, April 6th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
