Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty

Brooklyn Museum - New York
By Taliesin Thomas
Women’s sexuality has been a fascination throughout the sweep of art history, and numerous examples from ancient to contemporary times express the allure of the female form and its power to convey, coerce and captivate.

Amy Schissel: #everythingthathappensatonce

Laura Mesaros Gallery, West Virginia University - Morgantown, W.V.
