Robert Mapplethorpe Self-Portrait, 1980

The ARTIST ROOMS tour, now in its fourth year, brings 19 new exhibitions to 17 venues, with three chances to see the work of photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in Scotland.

The American artist pushed the boundaries of photography in both his subject choice and technique. This has led to him often being remembered exclusively for his controversial and often explicit images. Click on the venue links below for more information on the three ARTIST ROOMS exhibitions.
