If only size mattered, then Marilyn Monroe would be the star of this eclectic display of photographs, simply titled “Photo Show,” now at the Hal Bromm Gallery. Upon entering the Tribeca art space, she greets you nearly from floor to ceiling in 10 poses, wearing that come-hither look and little else. The set of framed color photographs, faded into reddish hues, is from Bert Stern’s famed 1962 series, “The Last Sitting,” recorded six weeks before the actress’s death.
While Marilyn may be the show’s dominant presence, she is just the opener in an unusual mix of artists and eras that come together in a logic all its own.
