Peres Projects presents Gay Town, a solo project with James Franco. Gay Town explores a variety of themes that are central to Franco's artistic practice, mainly issues related to adolescence, public and private persona, stereotypes and other societal concerns such as society's preoccupation with celebrity. Franco created most of the works for Gay Town over the past two years, making many of the works in hotel rooms, makeshift studios and other temporary locations whilst completing other projects, mainly motion pictures. Franco makes reference to several of his motion picture work and related projects in parts of the installations and other works on view in Gay Town. Gay Town will be on view from February 9 through March 9, 2013 at Peres Projects temporary space: Karl-Marx-Allee 87, Berlin
