The Artist Rooms collection of Mapplethorpe photographs is one of the best in the world.
Robert Mapplethorpe's works are by turns beautiful, aspirational and salacious. Radical in both its technique and its subjects, his art ranged from classical still lifes to visual exposés of sexual counterculture.
This show explores some of the challenging themes present in his work.
