Size: A4 paper folded in 2
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac presents Objects, an exhibition of Robert Mapplethorpe that brings together a set of rare and unique works on display for the first time in Paris. From the late sixties onwards, Mapplethorpe began to create three-dimensional objects, photographic montages and to a very personal creative approach that he has developed throughout his life. Never afraid to break the rules or shock, Mapplethorpe used these Objects as a way to expand the notion of what is possible in art. They reflect his radical and innovative approach embedded in the sociocultural context of 1970s New York.
