California Freeze-Out

Jan Peacock

1980, 16:20 minutes, colour


Peacock produced California Freeze-Out as an account of her experience of culture shock while in graduate school at UC San Diego: a significant early work in the artist’s career, it reveals her interests in the performance of shared social experience, image/ language relationships and non-linear narrative. California Freeze-Out debuted as part of the Long Beach Museum’s survey, California Video, by video curator Kathy Huffman. The exhibition toured internationally for two years.
