Lindsay Lohan Does An Art Film Called “Lindsay Lohan”

The words ‘Lindsay Lohan‘ and ‘art film’ may go together like ‘Anna Nicole Smith’ and ‘Buckingham Palace,’ but try to scrub “I Know Who Killed Me” from your brain for a minute if you can. The house arrest hellion is the star of an two-minute-long art film called “Lindsay Lohan” by Richard Phillips, to be screened eventually by the Gagosian Gallery in L.A. In the meantime, you can watch it online and, uh, enjoy the references to Ingmar Bergman’s “Persona” and Jean-Luc Godard’s “Contempt,” apparently. All I was reminded of, though, was how Lohan is truly quite beautiful. [Los Angeles Times] Keep reading »

James Franco Mutilates Himself In The Name Of Art

More high art on the way from Mr. James Franco. For his latest project, he is participating in a group art show called “Rebel,” a nod to “Rebel Without a Cause.” Part of the Venice Biennale and promoted by MOCA, the show is being described as a “fracturing [of] the themes and events housed within the original film and reframing them in an unresolved conceptual amalgam.” Whatever that means. Gotta love high art speak. Can anyone translate? Anyhow, James’ solo contribution is an homage to the late actor, Brad Renfro, who died of a heroin overdose in 2008, his co-star in the movie “Deuces Wild.” It is a documentation (both on photo and film) of James having Brad’s name carved into his right arm with a switchblade. I can’t tell if this sounds like artistic genius or bloated indulgence. I guess I’d have to see it. Either way, it’s pretty hardcore for James to walk around with a dead friend’s name carved into his arm. [LA Times]

Lindsay Lohan Bites

Random fact: Lindsay Lohan has a vampire fetish. Her friend, photographer Tyler Shields, displayed four pics of an undead LiLo at an art gallery in Los Angeles. “Lindsay loves vampires,” Tyler told People magazine at the exhibit’s opening on Saturday night. “It’s well documented that she is a vampire fan, and I said we need to do the craziest vampire mouth shot ever with her mouth.” (That’s “The Vampire Diaries”‘s Michael Trevino biting her neck.) Do you suppose Lindsay-as-vampire is some kind of meta commentary on the relationship between celebrities and the paparazzi and gossip press? Nah. She probably just likes those fake fangs.

Welcome To The Demented Dollhouse

Check out French artist, Marc Giai-Miniet’s, series of demented dollhouses for the maudlin child. I would have been the target market when I was five. Instead of arranging and rearranging my dolls in their house, I used to decorate it with already been chewed gum to make the house look “grosser.” The signs were always there. Gosh, I would have loved to have owned this one. It gets more disturbing as you descend. And look at all those dusty books. The possibilities would have been endless. Click here to see more of his creepy dollhouses. [Flavorwire] Keep reading »

Which Reality Star Is Also A Kinda Talented Artist?

It’s always fun to peek back into the lives of reality TV stars and see what they were like before they were famous. Er, “famous.” One reality star — whom we’re a big fan of here at The Frisky — was a student at the New York Institute for Technology and posted a dozen of his or her art projects online. There are paintings, still lifes, human figures, and sketches. Some of it’s quite good!

Can you guess who the reality star can be? Hint: on last night’s show, this person bailed their best friend out of jail. Keep reading »
