Honor Fraser Gallery is pleased to present early photographs by William Leavitt in the Spotlight section of Frieze New York.

William Leavitt has spent over five decades exploring the potential of constructed spaces and the role of science fiction in the collective imagination. The presentation will include seven photographic works from 1969 through 1977 that demonstrate early experiments with imagery and offer insights into Leavitt’s continuing practice.

These early works laid the foundation for William Leavitt’s expansive practice that now encompasses sculpture, drawing, painting, plays, and films. Drawing upon contemporary American culture, Leavitt opens a wealth of possibilities.
