Sep 23 2016, 2:21 am

Pompeii may be over but lucky for us, an equally exciting temporary exhibition has taken its place at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

Titled “Focus: Perfection,” this temporary exhibit focuses on Robert Mapplethorpe, one of the most influential photographers of the 21st century.

The exhibit hails all the way from Los Angeles and was curated by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the J. Paul Getty Museum in collaboration with the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation.

Focus: Perfection will track Mapplethorpe’s work from the beginning of his career in the 1960’s to his tragic death in 1989.

Mapplethorpe’s compelling photographs tackled everything from race to sexuality and 250 of his them will be on display for Montrealers to ponder for the coming months.
