Event Description
Mapplethorpe


Strip away the drugs, the leather, the M4M sex, and what remains are the photographs: Robert Mapplethrope’s stunningly beautiful homoerotic art, which is startling even today.



 



The iconic photographer is the subject of a revealing biopic that begins with his adolescent years in Queens, New York in a repressive Catholic household, which is controlled by a critical father who ridicules his photography. The film traces his tentative relationship with future punk rocker Patti Smith (Marianne Rendon), and then moves on to the queer underground S&M scene as well as the upscale galleries of the 70s and 80s in New York City.
