In 1956, British journalist Colin Clark spent seven days with Marilyn Monroe on the set of The Prince and the Showgirl. His experience with the iconic sex symbol—away from the scrutiny of the public eye—inspired the film My Week With Marilyn, which stars Michelle Williams and Eddie Redmayne and opens nationwide today.

"Youth and Beauty: Art of the American Twenties" brings together the paintings, sculptures, and photographs of 68 artists who captured the uninhibited nature of twentysomethings in the 1920s, a generation emerging from the ruins of WWI and blithely unaware of the impending global downturn. The collection is now on display at the Brooklyn Museum and runs through January 29.

Saturday, November 26

Holy Ghost! perform at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg.

In "Derivatives*," his first solo exhibit at Chelsea's Postmasters Gallery, William Powhida tackles philosophy, perception, and ideology—all in the context of today's tumultuous political and economic landscape; on display through November 26.

Sunday, November 27

Chicago-based artist Theaster Gates pays tribute to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in "An Epitaph for Civil Rights." The collection of mixed-media sculptures explores the turbulent and violent environment of Birmingham, Alabama, in the early 1960s while paying homage to the SCLC's civil-rights efforts. The exhibition runs through January 16 at MOCA L.A.
