LOS ANGELES, CA.- Frieze Projects returns to Paramount Pictures Studios’ iconic backlot set with a series of immersive art installations, site-specific works, performances and videos, co-curated by Rita Gonzalez (Terri and Michael Smooke Curator and Department Head of Contemporary Art, LACMA) and Pilar Tompkins Rivas (Director, Vincent Price Art Museum). Frieze Projects is an anchor program of Frieze Los Angeles that takes place February 14 – 16, 2020 at Paramount Pictures Studios in Hollywood. Launched in 2019, Frieze Los Angeles brings together more than 70 galleries from around the world and is supported by global lead partner Deutsche Bank for the second consecutive year.

Frieze Projects takes place across Frieze art fairs globally, offering a curated program of ambitious and experimental artwork beyond the gallery booths. The LA edition of the much-celebrated program features new commissions and landmark works exploring themes of representation, identity and myth. Artists presenting new works include: Will Boone, Tania Candiani, Sayre Gomez, Channing Hansen, Vincent Ramos, Gabriella Sanchez, Gary Simmons, Lorna Simpson, Tavares Strachan, Mungo Thomson and Mario García Torres. Other featured artists include: Patrisse Cullors, Jonathas De Andrade, Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Barbara Kasten and Naama Tsabar.

Co-curators Gonzalez and Tompkins Rivas said: ‘For the second edition of Frieze Projects we wanted to globalize the selection of artists, while thinking in particular about Los Angeles’ relationship to the Americas. Many of the works draw on the political context within which we are operating today. Latinx and Latin American art and histories are put into focus with projects by Tania Candiani and Gabriella Sanchez, while works by Gary Simmons and Lorna Simpson touch on themes of visibility, identity and self-fashioning in relation to the African American experience. Another idea was to bring in artists, such as Vincent Ramos and Channing Hansen to work within the archive and legacy of Paramount Pictures Studios, deepening the program’s conversation with its filmset location.’

The full 2020 Frieze Projects program includes:

Will Boone (b. 1983, USA, lives and works in Los Angeles, USA)

Kasten gives a new life to Intervention, a sculptural installation that evokes the backdrops of pictorial and filmic production while echoing the Bauhaus and Constructivism.

Vincent Ramos (b. 1973, USA, lives and works in Venice, USA)

A site-specific installation investigating both the absence and presence of the Mexican and Mexican-American / Chicano experience within Hollywood film production, specifically through the movies produced by the fair’s host, Paramount Pictures.

Gabriella Sanchez (b. 1988, USA, lives and works in Los Angeles, USA)

Presented by Charlie James Gallery

Playing with language and imagery, Sanchez’s banner and other pieces engaging with signage on the backlot, reference Chicanx and barrio culture, notions of masculinity, and layered meanings through text.

Presented by Regen Projects

A restaging of the artist’s historic work Backdrop Project first shown at Metro Pictures, New York in 1993. By taking Polaroids of passers-by and offering a copy to his subjects, Simmons explored the power of self-fashioning and authorship.

Presented by Shulamit Nazarian

A performative installation with related photographs that co-opts and upends the guitar solo through a conjoining and doubling. Using two guitars grafted together, Tsabar and a partner turn the performative gesture into an act based on intimacy and cooperation.
