group show: Robert Mapplethorpe in 'Self Evidence: Woodman, Arbus and Mapplethorpe', Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh

6 April - 20 October 2019

 

Robert Mapplethorpe is in 'Self Evidence - Woodman, Arbus and Mapplethorpe', Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh, as part of Tate ARTIST ROOMS. 

 

Highlighting the richness of the ARTIST ROOMS photography collection, which is jointly owned by National Galleries of Scotland and Tate, Self Evidence - Woodman, Arbus and Mapplethorpe celebrates the work of three of the twentieth century’s most influential photographers: Francesca Woodman, Diane Arbus and Robert Mapplethorpe. With a particular focus on self-portraiture and representation, the show explores the connections and similarities between these three Americans, each of whom produced bodies of work that were revolutionary, ground-breaking and at times controversial.
