James Franco signs at MOCA on Saturday, April 14, 2012 from 3–5pm.
MOCA Grand Avenue, Ahmanson Auditorium
250 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Please join Oscar-nominated actor, writer, and artist James Franco for a discussion about his work with Francisco Ricardo, PhD., lecturer at RISD, author, and art theorist.
Franco will sign copies of his newly released book at the MOCA Store after the talk.
James Franco: The Dangerous Book Four Boys explores themes of childhood, nostalgia, games, and destruction in multiple media including sculpture, video, photography, and drawing. Each experimental film, suite of drawings, and raw, childlike construction is presented as a window into the artist’s mind. This dense and often diaristic survey reflects Franco’s interest in the contemporary American landscape of male adolescence, young adulthood, sexuality, and the nature of masculinity itself.

Please note: Franco will only sign copies of The Dangerous Book Four Boys purchased from the MOCA Store (proof of purchase required) on a first-come first-served basis. Due to high demand, early arrival is recommended. The signing will end promptly at 5pm.
