A Look Into The "Artistic" Mind Of James Franco

| Filed under: James Franco

For what feels like forever, James Franco has been kind of…off. Working on projects and saying strange things, all for the sake of his "art."

When kept hearing about his "art," but had no idea what the eff he was talking about.

Until now.

Above are some photos from James' new exhibit, entitled The Dangerous Book Four Boys, at the Clocktower Gallery in Tribeca. The show incorporates sculpture, photography, drawing, film and video all of which centers on "ideas of boyhood and the sexual awakening of the early teenage years."

Uh-huh. Okay. Sounds good, but a few questions, James.

We're pretty positive there is a penis on your nose up there. Are you being clever or are you letting us know this is something you are definitely into?

Also, cute kitty. Is it alive?

And finally, um, WTF??? Is this an episode of Hoarders? This shiz makes ZERO sense! Is this what you have been wasting your life and talent on???

Weird! Just Weird!

What do U think?

    He's wearing a Lady Gaga mask.



  2. 2

    way to insult a student.
    if lady gaga had made this, you would love it because it was different.
    anyone else who creates different is weird and wasting their talent, to you.



  3. 3

    That is messed, he should definitely stick to acting.

    I hope to god that cat is either a) alive, b) fake.



  4. 4

    "When kept hearing about his art"
    who's when?



  5. 5

    Mario, your idea of art is a painting of a clown on velvet… stick to what you know.. which is not much…



  6. 6

    He's just trying to be arty like Andy Warhol. Trying too hard really.



  7. 7

    Eww.. the kitty looks dead.. I love James but WTF?



  8. 8

    i th!nk i'm scared…….the dick 0n the nOse reminds me 0f gOnzo frOm the muppets…haha!

    Give him a break. If lady gaga made this you would say it was "ferosh". And he's said a million times he's not gay. He is very artistic and has a lot of integrity, and doesn't give a shit what hollywood thinks of him, so I have no doubt if he were gay he would be proud and would have no problem saying that he was.

    sure he got a lot of use out of the strap-on

    What the eff are you talking about? Who is When?

    Who wrote this? Because they clearly did not read it before they posted it.



  12. 12

    LOL!!! Perez you are hilarious!!



  13. 13

    and what exactly do you know about art?



  14. 14

    overpaid actor. too much free time. NEXT.



  15. 15

    Art of the simple minded



  16. 16

    its conceptual art.
    get over yourself, perez.



  17. 17

    Looks like Phillip Garrido's workshop to me.



  18. 18

    artistic or sadistic ???



  19. 19

    Pretentious garbage



  20. 20

    Re: jones19 – I see more of a wannabe Harmony Korine thing going on. Very TRASH HUMPERS, especially that first pic.



  21. 21

    Why are you putting art in ""? Just because you don't have a creative bone in your body doesn't mean that others don't.



  22. 22

    conceptual art needs context.. and that can't be found in a quick gossip column snapshot. that being said, most artists just starting out don't have the luxury of incorporating empty bottles of patron into their work or the entire fan base of perezhilton.com introduced to their first installation. you get perks and perils, franco.



  23. 23

    LOL! At least he's trying something original unlike cun*t Perez.



  24. 24

    Hmmmm……let's see. I think tonight I'm going to go home and create a prolapsed asshole out of paper mache and tie it to my head like a party hat, take some pictures of my own fecal matter and then spend 4 hours blindfolded listening to Lionel Richie's "Dancin On the Ceiling" album and call it "art".

    On a scale of Ed Hardy to Affliction……he's about a 9 on douche levels.



  25. 25

    It's better to be wasting his time doing stuff like this, Than wasting time trash talking people over a blog..



  26. 26

    It seems like over the last year, every time I read about him I just lose more and more respect. Guy needs to cut some weed out of his life.



  27. 27

    Kinda reminds me of his character on General Hospital. Franco does stuff like this. He still hot!



  28. 28

    I noticed the peen right away and just lmao'd. yeah… pretty weird. But I still think James Franco is one amazing actor!



  29. 29

    Perez. You are such a fucking moron. It really doesn't surprise me that you don't understand this. You wouldn't know a successful piece of artwork if it bit you in the ass. Please stop talking about art. Your words are truly nauseating.



  30. 30

    wow what?



  31. 31

    This guy somehow reminds me of Lady Gaga… Aren't you supposed to like that kind of shit, Perez?



  32. 32

    Is called "Art" retard, you call some of the shitz your CaCa Man produces So does him…

  33. wolfe says – reply to this

    Brilliant actor.



  34. 34

    AND LADY GAGA'S "ART" MAKES SO MUCH SENSE!!!!!!



  35. 35

    this reminds me of a quote from one of my favorite authors:
    "After a few months in my parents' basement, I took an apartment near the state university, where I discovered both crystal methamphetamine and conceptual art. Either one of these things are dangerous, but in combination they have the potential to destroy entire civilizations. "
    — David Sedaris

    my husband has the dangerous book for boys on our coffee table….random



  38. 38

    Is that a taxidermed kitty?



  39. 39

    It's actually really cool… Honestly "art" is something that is hard to understand and require an unbiased and open mind… It's not for everyone but saying "this makes no sense" is just like saying "I don't care enough to try to understand". If you don't like it cool, but try to find a legit reason. I am excited to see more



  40. 40

    all of your comments made me actually laugh out loud - and i'm and alumni art student

    Re: taliachristine – EXACTLY!



  42. 42

    I believe James Franco is the hottest guy alive…next to Ian Somerhalder, of course.♥

    You need to understand what 'The Dangerous Book for Boys' is all about. Go to Amazon.com and look up 'The Dangerous Book for Boys' and scroll down and watch the cute accompanying video. You may then understand a little of Franco's (nostalgic?) exhibit. This is nothing at all how it's being portrayed here. Perez is usually so into different art.

    Re: Bö!!!SEMICOLON!!!rte Petrarchia – I've been wanting to see Trash Humpers for a while now! Bugs me that I can't find a decent torrent download.



  45. 45

    What the fuck has he done to that cat? Someone call the Humane Society…or whatever you call that in the US. He calls this "Art"?? It's just another actor trying to be something they're not.



  46. 46

    james franco is soooo friggin sexy, i want to see him in another big movie!! …where hes not kissing boys like in milk lol!



  47. 47
