If you’re in the Miami area today and tomorrow, this is an absolute MUST-SEE event! A pop-up immersive installation of Mapplethorpe’s work is on view at Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Campus from 5PM until 10PM daily. Come face to face with his most provocative masterpieces. Presented on a scale worthy of its artistic impact, this digital gallery features rare and revealing commentary from the photographer himself.
The art experience commences its tour at MDC, accompanying the presentation of the HBO produced documentary, Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures. The film receives its Florida premiere tomorrow at this year’s Miami International Film Festival. Directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (HBO’s Party Monster,The Eyes of Tammy Faye, and Wishful Drinking) have compiled archival materials and never-before-seen photographs and footage, to offer an intimate look at of one of the most important artists of the 20th century.
The Mapplethorpe pop-up experience will be on view at Kyriakides Plaza daily and features larger than life projections ranging from some of Mapplethorpe’s famous images to more personal works, plus rare commentary from the artist himself. (via MDC News)
