Steven Klein - Editions, Photographs and Design Hong Kong Friday, June 14, 2024 | Phillips
  • “I was commissioned by Madonna to do the cover and videos for her 2005 album Confessions on a Dance Floor. It became one of several video pieces for her tour that followed the release of her album – this one in particular was for ‘Get Together’. These shoots also define and develop the character that Madonna brings to life for her tours and performances.”
    —Steven Klein

His work has been exhibited globally, gracing prominent venues such as Deitch Projects, Gagosian and the Guggenheim in New York. Furthermore, his work is featured in several public collections, including those of the National Portrait Gallery and the V&A in London and the ICP in New York.
