The actor delayed the opening so "his vision for the project can be fully realized."

James Franco’s art debut -- paying homage to James Dean -- at the Venice Biennale in Italy, which was supposed to open this week, has been delayed until a later date.

"James Franco has decided to postpone the opening of Rebel to a later date during the exhibition, so that his vision for the project can be fully realised," said the spokesman.
The actor’s exhibit, Rebel, is a site-specific installation featuring videos honoring James Dean’s film Rebel Without a Cause. 
Artists like Paul McCarthy, Aaron Young and Ed Rusha were collaborating with Franco.
Venice Biennale, taking place June 4 through Nov. 27, is the highest-profile fixture on the art world calendar. A short film about Lindsay Lohan will also debut there.
