Harmony Korine, among others, is currently showing work in the Richardson Magazine presented exhibition, The Male Gaze, up at Maccarone Gallery in NYC. Other artists displaying work include Nate Lowman, Adam McEwen, Leigh Ledare, and Otto Muehl.
Showbiz411 have posted up a photo of a Billboard advertising a project involving Harmony Korine and James Franco – first reported on this site in Late March.
James Franco‘s short film, called “Rebel,” may make to the Venice Biennale after all. Or to the Venice Film Festival. Or to Venice, California. Late actor Brad Renfro has something to do with it, as you can see from the billboard on Sunset Boulevard. Franco had Renfro’s name cut into his arm. This is the evidence. At least he just had “Brad” carved. (It could also be Pitt.) The film is an art installation concerning James Dean, whom Franco played a decade ago. Gucci’s backing it.
