Marilyn Minter

I read the blurbs about Ms. Minter’s work and it talks about eroticism. Or sensuality. What I see is gluttony. Not for food. But for decadence. If Ms. Minter is not making a statement about our societies lust then she should be. Beautiful women vomiting jewels. Terrific images.

Cheim & Reid’s press release quotes from Laura Mulvey‘s seminal essay, “Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema”: “In their traditional exhibitionist role women are simultaneously looked at and displayed, with their appearance coded for strong visual and erotic impact so that they can be said to connote to-be-looked-at-ness.” When women are both the looker and the looked at, the exhibition suggests, the distance between voyeur and the object is conflated and “to-be-looked-at-ness” may simply become “to-be-ness.” The exhibition continues through September 19, 2009.

Somebody took an intro course to modern philosophy. What drivel.
