"What a moment it was.

Twenty-five years ago, the Cincinnati stop of Robert Mapplethorpe's controversial exhibition, 'The Perfect Moment,' triggered a series of events that forever shaped our ideas on art, pornography and freedom of expression.

A Friday and Saturday symposium will spotlight these events, as well as the art and the artist at the center of the debate.

The program – 'Mapplethorpe + 25' – from FotoFocus and the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC), which opened the exhibit April 7, 1990, will include an international roster of curators, critics, artists and other professionals."
