Carmen Bordas reflects on…

FRIEZE LOS ANGELES

2020

Year 2: PARAMOUNT STUDIO LOT – Will it ever be the same.

 

FRIEZE LOS ANGELES 2020

First of all, FRIEZE LA takes place at Paramount Pictures Studios, the historic studio lot located right her in Hollywood. It largely focuses on contemporary art and celebrates the exceptionally dynamic culture of LA and its global contributions to the visual arts. 

The full program at Frieze Los Angeles brings together around 70 of the most significant and forward-thinking galleries from across the city and around the world. The fair experience happenings take place across the city.

The fair attracted 35,000 visitors during its four days at Paramount Pictures Studios, which featured 75 local and international galleries in addition to unique artist commissions as part of Frieze Projects and the Artist Street Fair on the Paramount Pictures Backlot.
Bettina Korek, Executive Director of Frieze Los Angeles, said, ‘After just two years, it is already hard to imagine Los Angeles without an annual Frieze Week. Frieze Los Angeles is the heart of a moment that galvanizes creative communities across the city.
While the exhibitors, artist-run spaces, nonprofit organizations and artists onsite at Paramount only scratch the surface of L.A.’s multifaceted cultural scene, new models we’ve tested this year like the Artist Street Fair have been a resounding success.
Attendees included Jim Gianopulos, CEO of Paramount Pictures, said, ‘It was an honor once again for us to host Frieze L.A. on the Paramount lot, and see such an outpouring of enthusiasm for this gathering of so many brilliant artists and influential galleries.’
Also in attendance was Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas said ‘The success of Frieze L.A. in its second year is another indication and market signal of L.A. County’s well-earned role as a leader of the creative economy whose impact is felt across the globe. Frankly, the creative economy and events like Frieze represent one of our greatest opportunities for the future.

FRIEZE featured the work of George Rodriguez on the cover.

 

FRIEZE Week was proud to have cast a wide net with contributions from local artists, curators, writers and even entertainment royalty. We saw LL Cool J and Jenifer Lopez with hubby just to name a few. They also covered photography legend George Rodriguez. At first glance an image redolent of old Hollywood glamour, Rodriguez also captures behind the scenes workers, subtly foregrounding issues of labor and social identity.

The Opening Preview on Thursday, February 13, saw swift sales and major placements by numerous exhibitors in the Galleries section of the fair. Younger and established galleries reported exceptional collector enthusiasm and interest in works presented, with many sold out presentations and numerous sales in the seven-figure range.
The fair also presented the first Focus LA section in the galleries tent, providing a platform for emerging Los Angeles spaces that have been open 15 years or fewer, underlining Frieze’s commitment to the city’s vibrant cultural landscape. Château Shatto had a sold out booth with works by Aria Dean and Helen Johnson.
