Mapplethorpe at the Guggenheim Museum

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

Implicit Tensions: Mapplethorpe Now. I don’t understand the title of this exhibition whatsoever, but I enjoyed the broad slice of Mapplethorpe’s work on display. Many pieces from The Perfect Moment that stirred up all that controversy in my hometown and my curiosity were on display.

The added bonus was seeing the museum again. Complex simplicity. As Thor mentioned, we’d seen two of the most significant pieces of architecture in America in the same day.

Notes:
1.) I forgot to post this on June 22 for some reason.
2.) I choose to make images black and white when color temperature is all over the place and want things cohesive, aka “artsy.”
