Darren Aronofsky Gets Ready To Launch His Noah Art Exhibition

The exhibition, Fountains of the Deep: Visions of Noah and the Flood will coincide with the release  of Aronofsky’s latest  film on the life of the biblical character

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" New York Special Screening - Inside Arrivals

With the launch of his latest epic movie just a few short weeks away Darren Aronofsky obviously has enough time on his hands. That may be the reason why he has decided to put together a special art show totally inspired by the Biblical fable of Noah and his famous ark.

Aronofsky’s exhibition, that will go under the title of “Fountains of the Deep: Visions of Noah and the Flood”, with the director taking personal responsibility for picking out the  fifty artists whose work will be featuring an exhibition, even going as far as  requesting that they produce something specifically for the exhibition

The exhibition will preview  works by internationally renowned artists such as Mike Nelson, Ugo Rondinone, Karen Kilimnik, Sue Williams, Simon Bisley, Jim Lee and Brooklyn street artist Faile, sharing the backdrop against a cross-section of creations from some of New York’s most talented cartoonists and budding street artists,  as well a piece from  artists Mike and Doug Starn, who specialize in producing collaged  photographs that appear to have been submerged in water

Expected to be among the highlights of the exhibition will be  a work from photographer Nan Goldin, as well as a piece created by the late Reverend Howard Finster, whose paintings were used on LP covers by  Talking Heads and R.E.M.

The Fountains of the Deep exhibition will be held  in a pop-up art space situated on 462 West Broadway in Manhattan and is scheduled to run from March 7th to the 29th closing just in time for the opening of the film version of Noah starring Russell Crowe  as the man himself with an excellent supporting cast including Anthony Hopkins,  Jennifer Connelly and former Harry Potter star Emma Watson.

Visions of Noah and the Flood isn’t the first time Aronofsky has tied the launch of a film that he has directed to an art exhibition, with  the 2011 launch of  “Black Swan” which was curated by Dominic Teja Sidhu, who has  also helped  to put together  “Fountains of the Deep.”

Darren Aronofsky  is a graduate of Harvard University, where he studied film and social anthropology, going on to attend the American Film Institute to study film direction.

Noah will be Aronofsky’s fourth  feature film, with his first  Pi, produced in November on a budget of just $60, 000 going on to gross over $3 million, as well as earning  Aronofsky as well as the Directing Award at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival and an Independent Spirit Award for best first screenplay.

Darren’s followup, Requiem for a Dream also gained strong reviews as well as an Academy Award nomination for veteran actress Ellen Burstyn for performance in the movie. Aronofsky third film, The Fountain was less successful,  gaining lukewarm critical reviews and indifferent box-office receipts, although it has been since classed as a “grower” garnering a considerable cult following.

The director’s fourth film, The Wrestler, was much more warmly received with both its leading actors, Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei, recipients of Academy Award nominations.

Black Swan, Aronofsky’s fifth movie is regarded as his best to date both commercially and critically, being a nominee for  five Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director, while  Natalie Portman won an Oscar for Best Actress for her part in the movie.
