A retrospective exhibition of four decades of her work,“Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty,” is co-organized by the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. It’s part of “A Year of Yes: Reimagining Feminism at the Brooklyn Museum,” a series of 10 exhibitions celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.
