Featured Works on Exhibition A:
Harmony Korine is one of the few artists working in American cinema today. His latest film, the buzzed-about Spring Breakers, was chosen to compete for the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival. Harmony first rose to prominence with his script for Kids in the 1990s. He took a deeply experimental turn with films like Gummo, Trash Humpers, Mister Lonely, and Julien Donkey-Boy. His books include A Crack Up at the Race Riots; Pass the Bitch Chicken, a collaboration with Christopher Wool; and Train Yourself to Lose, a project with Dan Colen. Korine has had solo exhibitions of his paintings and other visual art at locations including Gagosian Gallery, New York (2014), Patrick Painter, Santa Monica, CA (1997, 2000); Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst, Ghent, Belgium (2000); along with a two-person exhibition, “Rita Ackermann and Harmony Korine: Shadow Fux,” at Swiss Institute, New York (2010-2011). His work was also included in the 50th Venice Biennale (2003). He lives in Nashville with his wife Rachel and daughter Lefty.
