Robert_Mapplethorpe,_Self-portrait,_1980

Robert Mapplethorpe’s Birthday is celebrated at Modern Now.

Robert Mapplethorpe (November 4, 1946 New York City;– March 9, 1989 Boston, Massachusetts) was an American photographer, known for his large-scale, highly stylized black and white photography. His work featured an array of subjects, including celebrity portraits, male and female nudes, and stills of flowers. His most controversial work is that of the underground BDSM scene in the late 1960s and early 1970s of New York. The homoeroticism of this work fuelled a national debate over the public funding of controversial artworks.

Located in the vibrant artist community of Studioplex and adjacent to the impecable Serpas Restaurant, Modern Now Gallery is a rare find in the Atlanta Art Scene. Their collection ranges from thousands of rare art & architecture antiquarian books (including hard to find journals) to a wide range of artworks that span from local fringe to established Atlantan artists as well as a wide range of Modern Masters; that price from the affordably decorative to the impossibly rare. If you are visiting Atlanta or are a member of the community, you should stop by and experience the culture and the fresh perspective they have of contextualizing the old with the new, the established with the fresh, and the proven with the experimental.
