The first major blockbuster exhibition will open at the Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) on 12 February, recalling the life of 1950s American screen icon Marilyn Monroe.

A survey of more than 100 works by 50 leading 20th- and 21st-century artists, this extraordinary exhibition attempts to reveal the person behind the star through paintings, photography and videos from both public and private collections.

Visitors can expect works by Andy Warhol, Cecil Beaton and Henri Cartier-Bresson, and pop legends Mel Ramos and Werner Berges. 

During the exhibition’s three-month season, MAMA will also host a series of events, including film, live cabaret and a Marilyn lookalike competition.

Tickets available now.

MAMA, 546 Dean Street, Albury
Friday 12 February – Sunday 8 May 2016
