Tonight, James Franco’s first solo art show opens at the Clocktower Gallery in New York City. In a recent review of the show, the Wall Street Journal called it a “sort of creative schizophrenia” and now that we’ve had a sneak peek we can understand why.
One of our readers, Denise, stopped by the gallery this afternoon and caught a preview of the show which includes a video of Franco wearing a prosthetic penis on his nose and another display with said prosthetic under glass.
Check out photos of Jame’s show after the jump!
The exhibit, entitled “The Dangerous Book Four Boys” incorporates sculpture, photography, drawing, film and video all of which centers on ideas of boyhood and the sexual awakening of the early teenage years.
The Clocktower Gallery, a nonprofit exhibition space, is located at 108 Leonard Street in Tribeca and is open daily from noon to 5 pm.
Check out photos of Jame’s work below and let us know what you think!
Denise sent us two more photos from the exhibit, here’s how she describes them:
It’s a short film (Star Trek Kirk/Spock gay hook up) and super low-budget. I’ve attached 2 stills from it. Kirk is the white mannequin (voiced by James Franco) and Spock is the black mannequin. From what I saw, it’s the two of them talking about how Spock’s sex organs are his fingers and then they hook up. After that, the ship gets shot at by men in monkey masks and suits.
