From Friday, Feb. 14, through Sunday, Feb. 16, Frieze Projects will return to Paramount Pictures Studios’ backlot set with a series of immersive art installations, site-specific works, performances and videos.
Launched in 2019, Frieze Projects, which brings together more than 70 galleries from around the world, is an anchor program of Frieze Los Angeles.
Frieze Projects takes place across Frieze art fairs globally, offering a curated program of ambitious and experimental artwork beyond the gallery booths. This year’s program was co-curated by Rita Gonzalez, head of contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and Pilar Tompkins Rivas, director of the Vincent Price Art Museum.
The Los Angeles edition of the 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.
“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,” Gonzalez and Tompkins said in a joint statement.
