Fraenkel Gallery and RYAN LEE will present a joint exhibition by Kota Ezawa.

About the Gallery
Since 1979, Fraenkel Gallery has presented almost 400 exhibitions exploring photography and its relation to other media. The gallery exhibits and publishes significant works of art in a variety of media spanning two centuries. We believe that to understand photographs it helps to see them in light of other objects, and vice versa.

About the presentation
Fraenkel Gallery and RYAN LEE will present a joint exhibition by Kota Ezawa, featuring a selection of light-boxes, works on paper, and animations based on found imagery from contemporary culture. Among the highlights is Grand Princess, which will debut at the fair. Incorporating video and light boxes, it depicts the arrival of a Grand Princess cruise ship into the San Francisco Bay in March 2020, carrying some of the first known cases of Covid-19. Distilling these images into their most elemental forms, Ezawa’s work evokes the feelings of dissonance and fear that marked the coming of a global pandemic.
