Javier Peres is pleased to present The Dangerous Book Four Boys, the first European solo exhibition of James Franco exploring issues stemming from adolescence while acknowledging the contributions of influential artists and filmmakers such as Paul McCarthy and Kenneth Anger. The exhibition brings together short films, drawings, photographs, ephemera, sculptures and installations where we see Franco draw upon childhood experiences including notions of identity, masculinity, sexuality and other essential life experiences and culminates in presenting a rejection of normative parenthood and suggesting alternative paradigms for parental relations.
