Remember when Annie Leibovitz’s A Photographer’s Life came to town and people flocked to the ArtScience Museum? Well, we’re in for another Leibovitz treat, as her new show, Women: New Portraits, opens in Singapore next week.
Part of a ten-city world tour with commissioning partner UBS, the exhibition will be staged at a space that holds a special place in our hearts: Tanjong Pagar Railway Station. And even better, it’s completely free to the public.
Leibovitz’s original Women series came out in 1999, in collaboration with her partner, Susan Sontag. Since then, contemporary influential personalities have been added, including Facebook CEO Sheryl Sandberg and feminist activist Gloria Steinem. It seems only a select few from the entire collection will make it here, but we’re psyched nonetheless.
Get a glimpse of behind-the-scenes footage of the series below.
Women: New Portraits is from Apr 29-May 22 at Tanjong Pagar Railway Station. Free.
Paywall: You’re outta here, Coconuts stories are free for all
We have removed our paywall on all Coconuts stories. This does not mean the end of COCO+ Membership at all, but the value proposition is changing.
Rather than being a transactional subscription – whereby you pay for access to content – it is now a true membership program – whereby Coconuts stories are free for everyone but super-fans can monetarily support our independent journalism, and get added member benefits.
If you'd like to support Coconuts, you can become a COCO+ Member for as little as US$5 per year. Thank you!
