Harmony Korine Book Signing

Gagosian Shop
976 Madison Avenue, New York

Wednesday, September 12, 5-6pm

Gagosian is pleased to announce a book signing with Harmony Korine to celebrate Harmony Korine, recently published by Rizzoli in association with Gagosian and Centre Pompidou, Paris. The event will coincide with the exhibition Harmony Korine: BLOCKBUSTER, opening at the 976 Madison Avenue gallery on September 11. To attend the event, RSVP to Purchase a copy at the Gagosian Shop.
This is the first comprehensive monograph on the cinema, art, writing, and creative world of Korine, the boundary-breaking auteur of Kids (1995), Gummo (1997), Mister Lonely (2007), and Spring Breakers (2012).
Korine rose to prominence after penning the script for Larry Clark's infamous Kids at the age of nineteen. In addition to the critically acclaimed cult classics he has written and directed since then, Korine's creative practice extends to photography, drawing, and both figurative and abstract painting.
This monograph not only reflects on Korine's work to date, but also examines his influence over the past twenty years, exploring the artist's process and experimentation, as well as his expansive use of editing techniques. An interview by film critic Emmanuel Burdeau and an essay by curator Alicia Knock trace common themes through Korine's films and artworks, considering the ways in which he has captured the surreal quality of contemporary life.

Harmony Korine was born in 1973 in Bolinas, California, and currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee, and Miami, Florida. His cult films of the past twenty years merge reality with fiction and hand-held camerawork with precise montage. This heady mix of the unplanned, the seductive, and the outlandish crystallizes in his highly tactile paintings. Eschewing brush and fine art paint in favor of squeegees, leftover household paint, and masking tape, he creates loosely sequential images that echo the sonic and visual leitmotifs of his films. Korine's films include Kids (1995, written by Korine, directed by Larry Clark); Gummo (1997, written and directed by Korine); Julien Donkey-Boy (1999, written and directed by Korine); Ken Park (2002, written by Korine, directed by Larry Clark and Ed Lachman); Mister Lonely (2007, written by Korine, codirected with Avi Korine); Trash Humpers (2009, written and directed by Korine); and Spring Breakers (2012, written and directed by Korine). Korine's work has been shown in exhibitions worldwide, including Harmony Korine at Centre Pompidou, Paris (2017). His first novel, A Crackup at the Race Riots, was published by Mainstreet/Doubleday in 1998. Pass the Bitch Chicken: Christopher Wool & Harmony Korine, a book of collaborative images, was released by Holzwarth Publications in 2002. Korine's work was included in the 2000 Whitney Biennial and the 50th Biennale di Venezia (2003).
