Event Description

Robert Mapplethorpe’s practice as an artist was characterized by inherent dualities. He sought what he called “perfection in form” in everything from acts of sexual fetishism to the elegant contours of flower petals. This exhibition explores Mapplethorpe’s body of work through early drawings, collages, sculptures, and Polaroid photography; materials from his archive; portraits, still lifes, and figure studies; rare color photographs; and two seldom-seen moving image works. A companion exhibition will be presented simultaneously at the J. Paul Getty Museum.

Free, with admission to Robert Mapplethorpe: The Perfect Medium exhibition
Tickets: 323 857-6010 or purchase online.
Note: This tour meets near the BP Grand Entrance.
