The HBO team that created the Mapplethorpe Pop-Up Experience in Miami, New York, and San Francisco stopped by the World of Wonder Storefront Gallery last night to zshoozsh up our windows, installing ENORMOUS oversize Mapplethorpe images (not the dirty ones!) for all the passersby to gasp at in wonderment. If you’re in the LA area and want to see them – (they’re really beautiful at night when they’re all lit up) – drive by the corner of Hollywood Blvd and Cherokee. They’ll be on display through April 5th.
Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures premieres on HBO Monday night, April 4th, btw. And there’s a limited theatrical release in New York starting next week at the Cinema Village 22 E 12th Street (April 8th-14th).
