‘WOMEN: New Portraits’ by Annie Leibovitz to launch in Singapore in April Commissioned by UBS, the exhibition of new photographs will open to the public on 29 April 2016 at Tanjong Pagar Railway Station. Access to the exhibition will be free. Singapore, 12 April 2016 – ‘WOMEN: New Portraits’, an exhibition of newly commissioned photographs by renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz will open to the public in Singapore on 29 April 2016 at Tanjong Pagar Railway Station as part of a 10-city global tour. Leibovitz’s new work is a continuation of a project that began over fifteen years ago when her most enduringly popular series of photographs, ‘Women’, was published in 1999. Susan Sontag, with whom the original project was a collaboration, called it “a work in progress”. ‘WOMEN: New Portraits’ will reflect the changes in the roles of women today and will evolve over the coming year as a body of work.
