New Annie Leibovitz photo exhibition coming to Hong Kong
An exhibition of photographs by Annie Leibovitz – featuring women from various walks of life – will be held in Hong Kong next year. The show, entiled “Women”, is being organised by financial services company UBS and will launch in London in January. The photographs will be shown in Hong Kong in mid-2016 at a venue yet to be announced. The show will also take in Tokyo, San Francisco, Singapore, New York and Mexico City. While the number of portraits to be shown has not been finalised, UBS group chief marketing officer Johan Jervoe said the selection “will be a significant body of new work”. Asked whose portraits would feature, Jervoe said yesterday: “We do expect a broad range of women from diverse industries to be featured.” More details will be announced later this year. The exhibition is a continuation of a project Leibovitz and author Susan Sontag started more than 15 years ago, which resulted in a book of portraits called Women. Its publication was accompanied by an exhibition in Washington. The new portraits promise to reflect changes in the roles of women today.
