Focus: Perfection by Robert Mapplethorpe-This exhibition contains nearly 300 photographs that span over Mapplethorpe’s entire career. He was one of the most influential photographers of his time, and is known for the way his work focuses on perceptions of gender, race, and sexuality. Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is the only Canadian venue to host this exhibit, and this is the first comprehensive collection of Mapplethorpe’s work since the landmark exhibition The Perfect Movement. The Perfect Movement was controversial at the time, as North America was in a culture war.
