Her work has been exhibited at P.S.1/MoMA, The Yerba Buena, The Getty Museum, and The Reina Sofia.  In 2009, her first feature film, STAY THE SAME NEVER CHANGE, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and went on to be featured in New Directors/ New Films at The Museum of Modern Art and Lincoln Center. Her work is in many public and private collections including the Yale University Art Gallery, the Saatchi Collection and the Museum of Modern Art.

New York-based artist James Franco (b. 1978, Palo Alto, California) is a multi-talented actor, film director, screenwriter, musician, and performance artist. Franco carries on the Warholian marriage of celebrity and art, using media to constantly re-invent himself as an artist. Franco is specifically interested in exploring the multiple levels of addressing an audience, through platforms such as commercial film, installations, experimental short film, and performance. Major exhibitions include Gagosian Gallery, New York (2011); Clocktower Gallery, New York (2010); Peres Projects, Berlin (2011); and Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2010).
