Dance the Electric Slide in the Backlot of Paramount

Performances by Patrisse Cullors and Naama Tsabar at Frieze Los Angeles

in Frieze | 15 FEB 20

Frieze Projects features two exciting performances by Patrisse Cullors and Naama Tsabar.

Naama Tsabar's performance titled Untitled (Double Face) draws from the artist's overlapping interests in sonic performance and the hybrid nature of musical instruments. Tsabar uses two electric guitars grafted together and with a partner, she performs a seemingly masturbatory gesture into a performative act based on intimacy and cooperation.

Artist, activist and co-founder of Black Lives Matter, Patrisse Cullors presents a ‘restorative‘ performance. First performed in 2019 as Fuck White Supremacy, Let’s Get Free, Cullors’ performance for Frieze Los Angeles invites participants to move together united by a groove and the freeing act of dancing the electric slide. Led by Cullors, and with a live DJ, the dancers will wear headphones and move together silently through the backlot.

The performances are restorative acts that reclaim time, space, and physical and emotional energy, especially for participants of color, in the face of continued state sanctioned racism and violence.  This performance is accompanied by video documentation shown in a storefront with merchandise and information in support of the non-profit foundations Reform L.A. Jails and Black Lives Matter.
