An international tour of newly commissioned work by world-renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz will launch in London in January 2016. It will travel to 10 global cities in 12 months; Tokyo, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mexico City, Istanbul, Frankfurt, New York, and Zurich.
The new work is a continuation of a project Leibovitz began over fifteen years ago, when she published a book of portraits made in collaboration with Susan Sontag. Women is Leibovitz’s most enduringly popular series of photographs and she has long wanted to expand her exploration of the subject. The new portraits, in an exhibition also to be called Women, will reflect the changes in the roles of women today.
The new photographs will form part of the UBS Art Collection– one of the world’s most important corporate collections of contemporary art comprising more than 35,000 works.
Access will be free to the public.
