Frieze Projects: Immersive Artworks by International Artists
Responding to the curious context of a New York City filmset built in the heart of Hollywood, Frieze Projects 2020 features installations, performances, sculpture and videos exploring themes of representation, identity and myth.
Experience 16 new and significant projects, from outside performances by Patrisse Cullors and Naama Tsabar, to the restaging of historic works by Gary Simmons and Barbara Kasten, to Gabriella Sanchez’s banners and signs, drawing on Chicanx and barrio culture and Tania Candiani's live weaving installation exploring technology, migration and labor.
Frieze Film & Talks in the Paramount Theater
Watch new and significant video works and by contemporary artists, curated by Venus Lau. Frieze Film screenings will also feature public conversations with the artists and take place in the iconic Paramount Theater.
Artist Enterprises: Art for Social Change
