    Guggenheim launches year-long exhibition of controversial photographer Mapplethorpe.

    The work of Robert Mapplethorpe has long been imbedded in the collective consciousness of the photography scene and art world at large. A polarizing and unapologetic figure reaching critical acclaim with his black and white photographs of BDSM scenes and Mineshaft sex club goers. His exhibition sparked a lot of outrage in the American public, exposing the deep-rooted homophobia in American society. His work is a testament of the culture wars of 1988, a time of heated political and cultural tensions. To honor the work of this exciting figure, Guggenheim is launching a year-long exhibition of his legacy. The exhibition is entitled ‘Implicit Tensions: Mapplethorpe’ and is on show till the 10th of July and then from 24th of July to the 5th of January 2020.
