Robert MapplethorpePhotographs and self-portraits by the avant-garde American artist Robert Mapplethorpe are the subject of a free display at Tate Modern, where the portraits will be shown for the first time. Mapplethorpe was renowned for pushing the boundaries of photography in both his subject choice and technique, resulting in a number of controversial and explicit gay imagery. This exhibition allows for these controversial works to be displayed alongside his complete repertoire. Part of the Artist Rooms displays, there will also be a room dedicated to Alex Katz (26th April 2014 - 1st March 2015), displaying a group of large landscape paintings
