Join artists Lisa Anne Auerbach, Hannah Greely, Patrick Jackson, and Kori Newkirk as they discuss their site-specific installations for Frieze Projects at the inaugural edition of Frieze Los Angeles, held from February 15-17, 2019. For Frieze Projects, curated by Ali Subotnick, artists were asked to respond to the New York Street backlot of Paramount Pictures Studios, a simulacral environment in which visitors are seemingly in two cities at once: “New York City” within Los Angeles. Subotnick remarked: “Each artist has embraced the opportunity, and challenge, and the results are often magical and otherworldly, surreal and hyper-real, but never dull.”
