Being dead for over 50 years, you’d think interest in Marilyn Monroe would be limited to senior citizens.
It means a lot if you consider that she was buried a month after the Rolling Stones debuted at The Marquee Club in London, and more than three decades before Justin Bieber was born.
She seems still present, and now fans can enjoy two new exhibitions in Australia.
The unloved child, fostered by different families, Marilyn Monroe boasts a 14 million-plus following from beyond the grave, claims seven times the ‘likes’ of Angelina Jolie Pitt.
Marilyn: Celebrating an American Icon will form the core of a wider exhibition that has mined Monroe-inflected fashion, furniture and fine-art, from public and private collections around Australia.
It seems that the number of public avid for culture and international exhibitions provides a real context for her enduring relevance.
