Robert Mapplethorpe retrospective exhibition opens at the Grand Palais and Rodin Museum in Paris


The exhibition, that opened today to the public, presents over 250 works making it one of the largest retrospective ever held in a museum. It covers Mapplethorpe’s entire career as a photographer, from the Polaroids of the early 1970s to the portraits from the late 1980s, touching on his sculptural nudes and still lifes, and SM shots. 

The focus on his two muses Patti Smith, whom I had the chance to meet at Alison Jacques gallery in London a few years ago for the gallery's special Mapplethorpe exhibition, and Lisa Lyon explores the theme of women and femininity and reveals a less known aspect of the photographer’s work. 

In parallel with this, the musée Rodin presents another Mapplethorpe-Rodin exhibition, from 8 April to 21 September 2014.
