Triennial Marilyn trivia

I quite enjoyed my quick dip into the current Triennial art and design exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria.

One exhibit by Iraqi born Adel Abidin recreates the famous images of Marilyn Monroe in 'The Seven Year Itch' where she stood over a New York subway grate and her skirt billowed from the updraft. In Abidin's recreation it is a man wearing Arab clothing who is pictured.
