“6.13.89: The Cancelling of the Mapplethorpe Exhibition”
June 13, 2019 - October 6, 2019Free
6.13.89 will explore the highly politicized and publicized cancellation of the 1989 exhibition Robert Mapplethorpe: The Perfect Moment. On June 13, 1989, the Corcoran Gallery of Art bowed to significant political pressure and canceled the retrospective less than three weeks before it was scheduled to open to the public.
