[VIDEO] James Franco: Gay Town at Peres Projects Berlin
by Vernissage TV


Gay Town is American actor, filmmaker, writer and artist James Franco’s second solo show in Berlin with the gallery Peres Projects. The exhibition that is presented in a temporary project space on the historic Karl-Marx-Allee explores a variety of themes that are central to James Franco’s artistic practice: adolescence, public and private persona, stereotypes, and celebrity. The artist created most of the works for the show over the past two years. He created many of the works in temporary locations such as hotel rooms whilst completing other projects, mainly motion pictures. In this video we attend the opening reception of the exhibition, and gallerist Javier Peres talks about how he and James Franco developed the idea for the exhibition and the basic concept of the show.
