Queer Art After Hours coincides with Robert Mapplethorpe: the perfect medium. This comprehensive survey exhibition of one of the most influential American artists of the late 20th century showcases an extraordinary selection of his photographic work. From floral still lifes to portraits, figure studies and erotic imagery that charted his involvement in New York’s gay scene of the 70s and 80s.
