Annie Leibovitz Solo Exhibition
|Sundaram Tagore Gallery, Hong Kong|
|Date: 10 May - 17 Jun 2012|
Sundaram Tagore Gallery Hong Kong is pleased to announce an unprecedented exhibition of portraits by Annie Leibovitz. Her debut solo show in Hong Kong features iconic artworks from her forty-year career.
The exhibition revolves around the theme of power in public and private spheres. Leibovitz’s celebrated subjects assume gestures and poses that expose a very private side of their personalities. Included in this show are portraits of Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Steve Martin, Nicole Kidman, Philip Glass, and Angelina Jolie, among other notable figures.
Annie Leibovitz began her career as a photojournalist for Rolling Stone magazine in 1970, while she was still a student at the San Francisco Art Institute. In 1983, she joined the staff of Vanity Fair magazine, where she developed a large body of work—portraits of actors, directors, writers, musicians, athletes, and political and business figures—that expanded her collective portrait of contemporary life.
