This made me smile.  The spine made me laugh–“Do not attempt to read this it will only upset you”

“To Make Meringue You Must Beat the Eggs Until They Look Like This” by David Shrigley at the MOMA

Mesmerized by this short by Len Lye currently at the MOMA.  The film was made without a camera.  Lye painted and stenciled straight on celluloid which he then ran through a projector.  Loving how dynamic the colors and shapes are.

tim burton exhibit_moma_ny

Went to check out the Tim Burton Exhibit at the MOMA last weekend and it was pretty awesome.  Only pic I really got was one of the entry (above) before I was told there were no pics allowed.  The entry is definitely a good taste of the craziness inside.  My favorite character was Stainboy (below) with his superhero S on his chest and little cape.  My favorite chapter/episode of Stainboy was the one with where he wards off the toxic boy with a pine tree air freshener (video included below, keep scrolling).  All of the chapters are played on screens as you walk down a dark, black and white striped hallway leading to the rest of the exhibit. 

Lots of sketches and watercolors. Notes to people like Johnny Depp during filming.  Costumes and props as well, including the Edward Scissorhands costume, Batman masks, Catwoman suit, Angora sweater from the movie Ed Wood, etc.  Lots of figures from movies like, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,  Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Beetlejuice.  Some video media spread throughout.  Really good collection of work from Tim Burton not from his famous movies–sketches and watercolors of crazy creatures and characters he created in his spare time.  Good mix of stuff people/fans are familiar with and plenty of new stuff most have probably never seen. 

On show at the MOMA in nyc until April 26,2010.  Well worth it! 

(just fyi, I think you need to purchase tickets ahead of time for a particular time slot the day you wish to go because of it’s popularity.  If you have a membership card to the MOMA, you can just walk right in)

Thought this was a cute drawing.  Took a picture of this ad for the Tim Burton MOMA exhibit.  Not sure if it’s a cow or a dog or something else, but I like it!  A taste of things to come at the Tim Burton exhibit at the MOMA on show from November 22, 2009 to April 26, 2010.  Can’t wait to go.
