Right: Robert MapplethorpeStar (gold), 1983


Tom Burr, Black Folding Screen, (or, Blue Movie, 1969, aka Fuck), 2010


Banks Violette, Not Yet Titled (The End Edition), 2005

I was lucky enough to see this exhibit in London a few weeks ago. I Really liked Robert Mapplethorpe’s lesser-known sculptural pieces (top right). Also, Tom Burr’s Black Folding Screen really captured the Mapplethorpe methodology.
