Channing Hansen is selected for Frieze Projects Frieze Los Angeles 2020
Three artists - Gabriella Sanchez, Channing Hansen and Vincent Ramos - have mined Paramount's archives to create their new works. Sanchez has created a billboard and other signage throughout the backlot that incorporates film imagery portraying barrio culture, riffing on Chicanx graphic identity. Hansen is staging a "durational performance" that involves textile weavings inspired by "Star Trek" episodes filmed at Paramount. Ramos' work, an installation shown with drawings and zines, explores Mexican and Mexican-American/Chicano representation in Paramount films and elsewhere in Hollywood dating back to the silent film era.
