“James Franco is the ultimate artist, so partnering with James is a dream come true for Ovation,” said Robert Weiss, Ovation’s chief creative officer. “And, since Ovation’s mantra is ‘art is everywhere,’ James is the perfect person through whom to introduce viewers to a modern, more inclusive definition of art.”

Franco added: “This is a show where content dictates form and form dictates content. It is an art show that is an art piece, meaning the show has synced with the rhythms of my life and work. I am thrilled to work with Ovation, a network that has devoted itself to the arts. It is a truly unique situation and will yield unique results.”
