Robert Mapplethorpe: L'Obiettivo Sensibile at Galleria Corsini in Rome.
15 March-30 June. Galleria Corsini showcases the work of celebrated American photographer Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989) on the 30th anniversary of his death.
The show comprises 45 photographs by Mapplethorpe who courted much controversy in the US over the homoerotic nature of his work.
The Rome exhibition focuses on some of the less controversial themes relevant to Mapplethorpe's artistic career including still lifes, landscapes, classical statues and Renaissance composition.
The exhibition at Galleria Corsini is organised in collaboration with the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation in New York as part of a series of shows dedicated to the artist, including a major retrospective at the Guggenheim in New York and at the Madre Museum in Naples.
