Ends in 6 days

This is a reprisal of a show that opened in January, 2020 and closed early due to coronavirus.

Saul Leiter, a pioneer of color photography, passed away in 2013, leaving much of his work unorganized, including some 80,000 prints, slides, and negatives. Operating today in the artist’s East Village studio, the Saul Leiter Foundation is engaged in veritable excavation work in order to sort his oeuvre.

This exhibition ventures into a vast archive of works that were as yet unearthed during a 2017 exhibition, and features many unpublished pieces on display. Together with a rich collection of materials from his creative process, these new discoveries offer a fresh perspective on Saul Leiter and demonstrate his enduring appeal.

Closed on August 18 and September 8.
