The Dangerous Book Four Boys by James Franco now showing at the Clocktower Gallery in New York.

After meeting James Franco last night prior to his first ever art exhibition opening, I was extra excited to see “The Dangerous Book Four Boys,” at the Clocktower Gallery in New York.  James Franco has mastered so many disciplines and now it looks like he can add art to his ever growing list.  The exhibit has 16 areas of sculpture, pictures, performances and video.

Installation view

The exhibit, based on the wildly popular book The Dangerous Book For Boys, deals with sexual confusion and is quite an interesting hodge-podge of mediums.  There is a wooden house as you can see above and inside that is a projection of someone burning it down.

There was another room with a video, narrated by James Franco, of a version of Star Trek where Spock and Captain Kirk get it on.  Well, almost.  Spock can’t get an erection and instead ejacualtes through his fingertips.  Luckily we are spared from seeing that horrifying image that would be enough to turn any kid straight.  Ha!

Pages of The Dangerous Book For Boys with James Franco's handwritten sexual aggression

Peppered throughout the exhibit are pages from the original book with James Franco’s handwritten sexual aggression scribbled across them.

And now, here’s an image me and all my gays have dreamt about seeing (though not really in the way we were hoping): James Franco with a penis on his face!

I throw my toys around!

In the middle of one of the rooms, another scene of frustration was carefully inserted.

I couldn’t resist posting another picture of James Franco with a penis on his face.

The Clocktower Gallery is located at 108 Leonard Street in Tribeca.  It’s on the 13th floor of a building that is kind of shady and you will have to go through airport-type security before entering (including taking off your belt), so be warned.  “The Dangerous Book Four Boys” by James Franco runs until September 2010. Let us know what you think after you see the exhibit.  Art star or should he keep his day job?
