This biography from the Archives of AskART:
John Carter (b. 1970)

He is an American artist and film director based in New York City, using the professional name Carter for his artworks.  He was born in 1970 in Norwich, Connecticut.

Carter studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1992.  He then studied at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 1994, and the University of California, Davis, earning an MFA degree in 1997.

Carter is best known for his artwork that spans various media from painting and photography to sculptural installations, film and video.  His works have been exhibited internationally, including the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, Museum of Modern Art, New York, Tate Modern, London, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the USA Today and Abstract America exhibitions, at the Saatchi Gallery in London, England.  His works have also been shown at the Royal Academy in London and the Museion in Bolzano, Italy.

A comprehensive catalogue of Carter's work edited by Georg Kargl was published in 2008 titled, An Arm with Hair, (The Vienna Catalogue 1973).

Carter's first feature film, Erased James Franco was released in 2008.  It stars the American actor, James Franco in a performance that has him reenact every film and television appearance from his entire career.  The film also features Franco playing the part of Julianne Moore as her character in the film Safe directed by Todd Haynes and as Rock Hudson in the 1966 film, Seconds.

James Franco's appearances as a version of 'himself' on the daytime soap opera, General Hospital was inspired by Carter and can be seen as another facet or an extension of the work that began with the film, Erased James Franco.

Maladies, written and directed by Carter was filmed in New York in December of 2010.  It stars Catherine Keener, James Franco, David Strathairn, Alan Cumming and Mary Beth Peil.  In 2013, Maladies premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival, and the SXSW film festival in Austin and was set to be released theatrically and VOD through Tribeca Films in March, 2014.
