The Honor Fraser Gallery is representing William Leavitt.
Conceptual artist William Leavitt produces paintings, photographs, installations and performances that reflect the “cultural vernacular” of Los Angeles where he lives and works. The entertainment industry is the filter for the identity of a city where humour and seriousness blend together easily. Alongside Allen Ruppersberg, Bruce Nauman, Ed Ruscha, John Baldessarie, Bas Jan Ader, Guy de Cointet and William Wegman, William Leavitt is a figure on the Los Angeles artistic scene. Often using humour, the artist presents his work as an attempt to knock conceptual art off its pedestal. A major retrospective titled “Theatre Objects” was devoted to him at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art in 2011.
At the start of 2016, the Honor Fraser Gallery presented an exhibition on the artist called “The Small Laboratory”. The gallery is currently presenting “Default”, curated by Eden Phair, until 11 June 2016.
