The Marilyn Five.

The Marilyn five is this; five facts about one of the most powerful woman artists there is. We felt it was necessary considering the wild three-decade long career she has ridden and absolutely owned. Rarely is there a 'women in art' article she's not mentioned in, and following her recent show at Brooklyn Museum, rarely is there a critic not praising her technique, and her message. 

So if you're not a fan yet, we think you soon will be. We loved collaborating with Marilyn Minter

FACT #1
Marilyn Minter featured in Jay-Z's video Picasso Baby alongside fellow artists at the Pace Gallery in New York City. Jay-Z is also a collector of Marilyn's work!

FACT #2
She recently collaborated with Miley Cyrus and Marc Jacobs on a photo project turned T-Shirt to raise funds for Planned Parenthood. The photos featured in the artists Pretty/Dirty exhibition to continue the awareness campaign for women's reproductive rights. 

“[Miley] is one of the few celebrities to back Planned Parenthood. Most of them won’t touch it because they don’t want this very small but vocal minority to troll them,” Minter said. “I don’t care. You know, what are they going to do? Not buy my art? Artists are pretty fearless when it comes to that. But people can boycott a celebrity. They can make life uncomfortable.”

FACT#3
She collaborated with Supreme on a collection of Skateboard decks, and they are pieces of art. 

FACT #4
As part of her exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, she spoke with Madonna on feminism. You can watch it below. Powerful stuff. Grab yourself a cup of tea and settle in for this one. 

FACT #5
She was actually rejected by the art world in the 80's for not being serious enough, the fashion world for being too grotesque and even by feminists for creating works that could be seen as supporting oppressive behavior in women. It was her 1989 100 Food Porn Series that changed all this for the artist who is now seen as a sex positive feminist.
