For the exhibition ‘Eyes on Robert’, Melkweg Expo and Holland Festival have invited a diverse group of contemporary photographers to produce new work inspired by this influential photographer. Reinterpreting themes present in Mapplethorpe’s work and driven by their personal experiences and stories, the participating photographers will explore contemporary queer culture and sexuality.

Photographers: Ari Versluis, Daan Couzijn, Dustin Thierry, Dylan van Vliet, Ferry van der Nat, Henri Verhoef, Martijn Mendel and Vytautas Kumza. Co-curated by Tjade Bouma.

This exhibition is a collaboration between Melkweg Expo and Holland Festival in response to the theatre performance Triptych (Eyes of one on another).
