2-TIMES  Art
Marilyn Minter @
Lehmann Maupin,
Hong Kong

Raw, honest, and
at times explicit paintings
& photographs of women.

1948 – Shreveport, 
Los Angeles. 

Lives & works:
New York, NY. 

The exhibition:
is Marilyn's first
solo show in Hong Kong, 
presenting photographs
that utilize a new dye-
sublimation printing
technology, where the
image is printed
directly on metal,
resulting in a uniformity
of vivid luminosity
across the works.

Often described as
photorealist, though
her compositions,
which generally depict
her subjects through
steamed or wet glass,
actually linger on the
cusp of realism and

By pushing the
boundaries of beauty
and glamour imagery,
Minter exposes the
double standards that
influence women’s
identities and presents
brazen alternatives to
the depictions of
women that we
consume daily.
