Further reading – Mapplethorpe, art and politicsLatest News ->

Wed 30 Jun, 2010.

For those interested in our nonfiction main feature for SDk01, “Twenty years later: Mapplethorpe, art and politics”, there was a beautifully presented exhibition of Mapplethorpe’s work hosted by the Alison Jacques Gallery in London late last year. Entitled Robert Mapplethorpe: A Season in Hell, the exhibition featured not only photography, but also some of the artist’s mixed-media collages, installation and sculptural pieces. Importantly, the exhibition can be viewed on the hosting gallery’s website: see the Alison Jacques Gallery. Alert to such events, because magazine carried an article on the exhibition, choosing to emphasise Patti Smith’s appearance at the gallery (for those who didn’t know, Smith and Mapplethorpe were lovers in New York City in the late ’60s to early ’70s before the latter came out as gay, the two remaining committed friends until Mapplethorpe’s death in 1989).
