DWR is proud to be the sponsor of Conversations in Context at the Glass House — continuing the legacy of what has been described as “the longest running salon in America,” as great minds in architecture, art, and design gathered in New Canaan, Connecticut at the invitation of Philip Johnson and David Whitney.

About the host: Todd Eberle was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1963 and came to prominence with his iconic photographs of Donald Judd’s works produced at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas. Early in his career, he also photographed prominent artists and architects including Philip Johnson, Brice Marden, and Zaha Hadid. He is currently the photographer-at-large for Vanity Fair magazine. In addition to editorial photography, Eberle has exhibited at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Tate Modern, the Museum of Modern Art (New York), and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles). Eberle’s book, Empire of Space, published in 2011, chronicles his thirty-year career and features many never-before-seen photos. (Photo courtesy of Todd Eberle.)
