(Starts at 8:00)

Frieze Los Angeles is an outpost of an international art fair, comprised of booths from dozens of galleries from around the globe. The fair also includes Frieze Projects, which is staged on the Paramount Studio backlot. The show features 16 artist interventions that contend with issues of representation in all its guises. This includes pieces that explore the nature of Hollywood stereotypes and the ways in which the entertainment industry fashions perception, along with other pieces that dwell on the nature of artifice. John walked through the site with curators Rita Gonzalez (head of contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art) and Pilar Tompkins Rivas (director of the Vincent Price Art Museum).
