Hamza Walker and Josh Kun discuss their Frieze Talks program, getting to know artists through their music collections
Frieze Talks will launch in L.A. ahead of the fair, with a special program at LAXART. In the spirit of the game show Name That Tune that delighted millions of home viewers in the 1950s, Frieze Talks will challenge the ears and knowledge of select L.A. based artists whose work has an undeniable relationship to noise, sound, and/or popular music. Professor and music critic Josh Kun and curator Hamza Walker will test four artists over four evenings with a series of sonic fragments meant to thrill, confound, provoke, and entertain. Participants include, among others:
Frances Stark (7pm, February 1, 2019);
Lauren Halsey (7pm February 7, 2019); and
Jim Shaw (7pm, February 11, 2019)
Admission to Frieze Talks at LAXART is free and first-come, first-served.
