Condé Nast Underwrites Bruce Weber Exhibition

DetroitBruceWeberAhead of tomorrow’s official opening of Detroit – Bruce Weber, the famed photographer was joined by Anna Wintour and a “phalanx of impeccably coiffed Condé Nast officials” for a special media day preview. From Detroit Free Press staff writer Mark Stryker‘s report;

Detroit Institute of Arts officials declined to say how much money Condé Nast contributed to the exhibition, but [museum] chief operating officer Annmarie Erickson called it “substantial.”

The images in the show were drawn mostly from two extended trips that Weber made to Detroit on assignment, the first in 2006 for an expansive W magazine spread with model Kate Moss and the second last year for an ad campaign for Shinola.

The show runs through Sunday, September 7 and is free with museum admission. There is also a limited-edition companion coffee table book by Weber titled Detroit Has Been Good to Me.
