So many turned down exhibiting his work, yet he still matters

He brought eroticism into the mainstream in a way that people couldn’t ignore. A retrospective of his work is on view at two places in Los Angeles, at the J. Paul Getty Museum and at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art through July. There’s also a documentary about him debuting on HBO on Monday, April 4, called “Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures.”
