Last chance for Mar­i­lyn Min­ter

The Denver Post - - LIFE&CULTURE -

through jan 31. The Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art’s “Mar­i­lyn Min­ter: Pretty/Dirty” was one of the high­lights of 2015 and, it’s fair to say, one of the best ex­hibits in the MCA’s long his­tory of ex­cel­lent moves. The show did much to seal the deal on the rep­u­ta­tion of an Amer­i­can pho­tog­ra­pher and painter who never got as much credit as she de­served. Min­ter’s ab­stracted takes on fash­ion pho­tog­ra­phy — sexy and grotesque — com­ment on cur­rent ideals of beauty with­out mak­ing judge­ments. Save time for the video in the base­ment; you’ll want to watch sev­eral times. MCA, 1485 Del­gany St. $8. Free for 18 and un­der. mca­den­ver.org or 303-2987554. — Ray Mark Ri­naldi
