Robert Mapplethorpe Exhibition at the Elvira González Gallery


This past 23 May, the Elvira González Gallery inaugurated its second exhibition of the work of the North American photographer Robert Mapplethorpe – one of the most important photographers of the 20th century.

The show includes 32 works done between 1980 and 1989. The selection is made up of a number of pieces inspired by shapes and fragments of the human body.

The collection includes various photographs of vegetable and animal forms as well as those of other objects that offer suggestive geometric and light forms – one of the qualities that distinguish the artist’s work. 

Exhibition period: From 23-05-2013 until 19-07-2013
