Museo Madre in Naples announces the opening of the Robert Mapplethorpe exhibition Choreography for an exhibition.

For the first time in the history of Mapplethorpe's exhibitions, this show will comprise a performative program, starring internationally renowned choreographers.


This show coincides with the 30th anniversary of Mapplethorpe's first ever major retrospective exhibition, The Perfect Moment, held at the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia just months after the artist's death in 1988. Curated by Laura Valente and Andrea Viliani, it will remain open until April 22nd 2019.
