Ashley Anderson is opening Shinobi Marilyn, a new series at Emily Amy Gallery — and in the process, reviving the never-dead Marilyn Monroe. The exhibition is mixed-media, with animated gifs, collage, and painting and takes its title from the discovery of images embedded in the 1987 videogame "Shinobi." Anderson has built her works around the idea that the found images were in fact a tribute to Andy Warhol's Monroe paintings.
After the jump: more goings-on around town. Plus a drum line.
