Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures @ACMI #Melbourne [#geekgirl]

OPENS 22 SEP, 2016

Seen through the prism of the culture wars between America’s Christian right and the National Endowment of the Arts, what emerges is a balanced and powerful document on the power of artistic expression and the devastating legacy of HIV/AIDS.
