NOWNESS exclusive look Behind the Scenes at James Franco's All-Star LA Show.

Inside Rebel : Part One by Matt Black

Inside Rebel : Part Two by Matt Black

Actor, artist and curator James Franco reveals the genesis of his visceral art-film crossover exhibition, REBEL. Inspired by the mythology surrounding Nicholas Ray’s pioneering 1955 film Rebel Without a Cause, the show at LA’s MOCA includes collaborations with a stellar cast of leading contemporary artists, including Paul and Damon McCarthy, Aaron Young, Harmony Korine, Ed Ruscha, Terry Richardson and Douglas Gordon. Working closely with Franco, the artists reinterpreted and remixed the main themes, scenes and tragic events of the original—from the automotive death of lead actor James Dean to the rumored affair between the 44-year-old Ray and 16-year-old starlet Natalie Wood.        via
