The show

Curated by Flaminia Gennari Santori

The National Galleries of Ancient Art present the Robert Mapplethorpe exhibition at the Corsini Gallery in Rome. The sensitive target .

The exhibition continues the dialogue and intertwining between past and present that began with the exhibition of Picasso's Parade in 2017 and the Eco and Narcissus exhibition in 2018, a distinctive feature of the strategy outlined by the museum's management.
The exhibition, which brings together forty-five works , focuses on some themes that distinguish the work of Robert Mapplethorpe (1946 - 1989), well-known, revolutionary and controversial master of the late twentieth century: the study of still lifes, landscapes, classical statuary and of the Renaissance composition.
The curator's choice to do an exhibition on Robert Mapplethorpe is inspired by the collecting practice of the artist, avid collector of historical photographs, a passion she shared with her companion Sam Wagstaff, whose collection constitutes an extraordinary fund of the photography department of the Getty Museum.
The selection of the works and their placement in the Gallery respond to different intentions: to highlight aspects of Mapplethorpe's work that resonate in a particular way with the museum, understood as a space - physical and conceptual - of collecting, to trigger an unprecedented relationship between visitors, works and environments of the Gallery.
