Harmony Korine

Harmony Korine first rose to prominence with his script for "Kids" in the 1990's, and went on to direct influential and deeply experimental films like "Gummo," "Trash Humpers," "Julien Donkey-Boy," and, more recently, "Spring Breakers." One of the few directors working in American cinema who is also a visual artist, Korine has had four solo shows in the span of 2014-2015 alone, including a 2014 show at Gagosian Gallery on Park Avenue entitled "Shooters." Additional selected solo and group exhibitions include those at Gagosian Gallery (New York, Beverly Hills, & St. Jean), Patrick Painter (Santa Monica, CA), Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst (Ghent, Belgium), Swiss Institute (New York), and the 2003 Venice Biennale. 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 currently lives in Nashville with his wife Rachel and daughter Lefty.
