ABOUT THE WORK
Marilyn Minter is an artist whose creative output is inextricable from her activism and subversion of the status quo. Says Minter, "Progress is slow and there is urgency for racial equality now. It is our collective responsibility to each do our part to end racial injustice. As James Baldwin said: 'It's taken my father's time, my mother's time, my uncle's time, my brother's and my sister's time, my niece's and my nephew's time. How much time do you want for your progress?’"
Marilyn Minter (b. 1948, USA) is an artist and activist based in New York. Her work has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions and has been included in group exhibitions in museums all over the world. In 2006, Marilyn Minter was included in the Whitney Biennial, and installed several billboards in Chelsea, New York City in collaboration with Creative Time. Her video Green Pink Caviar was exhibited in the lobby of the MoMA from 2010-2011.
