'Rebel' es una oda interrogativa a la obra maestra de Nicholas Ray 'Rebelde sin causa' (1955), concebido por Franco para abrazar y determinar los principales temas y acontecimientos de la película original. La exposición reinterpreta las leyendas de la película, las personas involucradas, su lugar en Hollywood, el cine como un medio, y las secuencias detrás de las escenas, en una presentación nueva, fresca y poco convencional de cine, video instalación, fotografía, pintura, dibujo, y escultura, presentado y enmarcado por las estructuras icónicas de Hollywood.

MOCA presents 'Rebel', conceived by James Franco with Douglas Gordon, Harmony Korine, Damon McCarthy, Paul McCarthy, Terry Richardson, Ed Ruscha, and Aaron Young. 'Rebel' will be on view from May 15 through June 23, 2012, at JF Chen, a newly emerging contemporary art and design space, located at 941 North Highland Avenue, Los Angeles, California.

'Rebel' is an interrogative ode to Nicholas Ray’s masterpiece 'Rebel Without A Cause' (1955), conceived by Franco to embrace and mine the main themes and events in the original film. The exhibition reinterprets the film’s legends, the people involved, its place in Hollywood, film as a medium, and behind-the-scenes footage, in a new, fresh, and unconventional presentation of film, video installation, photography, painting, drawing, and sculpture, housed in and framed by iconic Hollywood structures.
