Join us for this year’s AFA Spring Luncheon featuring guest speaker Marilyn Minter in conversation with Catherine Morris, Sackler Senior Curator for the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum.

Your support will help us make art accessible to small and large communities across the nation.

For more than four decades, Marilyn Minter’s sensual paintings, photographs, and videos have vividly questioned the complex, often contradictory, perceptions of beauty and the feminine body in mainstream culture. Through her photorealistic depictions, Minter explores the relationship between art and feminism, fashion, and celebrity. Minter has exhibited extensively in museums and galleries internationally, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; CAC, Cincinnati; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; The Kitchen, New York; SITE Santa Fe; Fotomuseum, in Wintherthur, Switzerland; and La Conservera, in Murcia, Spain. Pretty/Dirty, a retrospective of Minter’s work opened at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston in 2014 and toured to the MCA Denver, the Orange County Museum of Art, and the Brooklyn Museum. Born in 1948 in Shreveport, Louisiana, Marilyn Minter lives and works in New York City.
