Robert Mapplethorpe

Hosted by

The photographer Robert Mapplethorpe is infamous for his provocative photographs, but his work was actually very diverse. Now, the scope of that diversity is on display in two shows running at LACMA and the Getty. Mapplethorpe is also the subject of a new documentary that premieres on HBO tonight called “Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures.” (This is a rebroadcast of an interview Madeleine recorded with the filmmakers at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.)
