Channing Hansen is selected for Frieze Projects Frieze Los Angeles 2020

Los Angeles, California, USA
Alongside 70 galleries within its main tent, Frieze Los Angeles 2020 presents 16 site-specific performances, sculptures and installations, scattered throughout the Paramount backlot. Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) curator Rita Gonzalez and Vincent Price Art Museum Director Pilar Tompkins Rivas are organising this portion of the fair with the goal of addressing issues of representation, identity and myth.

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.
