(Enquirer) Mapplethorpe Returns to Cincinnati

Posted November 05, 2015 in

"After the Moment opens 25 years after the Cincinnati stop of the late photographer’s controversial exhibition triggered events that forever shaped our ideas on art, pornography and freedom of expression.

Before The Perfect Moment opened in April 1990, CAC art director Dennis Barrie and the CAC were charged criminally for obscenity.

It was the first and only time a museum and a director faced such charges in the United States. And a jury acquitted the Barrie and the museum."
