Appetite is proud to present STAGING: MAPPLETHORPE, marking the iconic artist, Robert Mapplethorpe’s, first solo show in Singapore. The exhibition is a look into the artist’s pursuit of beauty explored through the human form, flora and still life.
Mapplethorpe’s compelling oeuvre establishes him as one of the most critically acclaimed and relevant artists of the 20th century, influencing the fields of visual art, fashion photography and more broadly, the ways in which we engage with images, for generations to come.
The works featured in this exhibition were shot between 1979 to 1987, his most prolific time and a tumultuous decade marked by a tectonic shift in economic landscapes, the rise of political conservatism in the United States and the height of the AIDS pandemic, a disease that would, ultimately and unfortunately, take the artist’s life.
Venue: Appetite, 72A Amoy Street, Singapore 069891
When: 11 Jan - 9 Apr 2022,
