Gallery owner and curator Thaddaeus Ropac, was one of the first to exhibit Robert Mapplethorpe’s early work. With his latest exhibition, he creates an interesting creative collaboration by inviting Sofia Coppola to chose her own selection from the Mapplethorpe archives.

“Robert Mapplethorpe Curated by Sofia Coppola is at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Paris until January 7, 2012.
