Annie Leibovtiz’s revered photographs that document the most important players of modern social history will dominate all of the gallery space at the Wexner Center this fall.
On view Sept. 21 through Dec. 30, the collection will star more than 200 Leibovitz images; 156 of which were personally chosen by the artist as part of her “Master Set.” The Wexner Center, according to a press release, is the first institution to exhibit this “Master Set” in its entirety.
Leibovitz’s distinguishable artistic voice and discerning photographic eye have made her an icon in both the art and magazine photography worlds. Even if you don’t recognize her name, you’d recognize her work (example: naked John clinging to fully clothed Yoko hours before he was murdered).
Recent work will also comprise the fall exhibit. Leibovitz’s “Pilgrimage” series features photos of objects, landscapes and spaces that the public attaches to historical figures such as Emily Dickinson, Abraham Lincoln and Elvis Presley.
