Exhibition: Robert Mapplethorpe: The Perfect Medium

This exhibition explores the life, work and legacy of Robert Mapplethorpe (1946–1989), presenting the artist’s best-known photographs alongside work that has never been published. The exhibition covers Mapplethorpe’s origins in the downtown New York scene in the 1970s, through his rise to fame as a photographer in the early 1980s, to his centrality in the so-called Culture Wars in 1989, the year of his death.

The exhibition is also on view at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (March 20–July 31, 2016).
