From Saturday, October 28 2017 to Sunday, February 18 2018

In black and white.

Discover the work of one of the most important photographers of the late 20th century in America: Robert Mapplethorpe. He has always sought "perfection in form", staging acts of sexual fetishism like the elegant contours of flower petals.

The exhibition presents a selection made from floral still lifes, rare coloured photos, portraits, but also controversial erotic images which have marked his involvement in the New York gay scene.

The exhibition contains sexually explicit images
