Tim Burton at MoMA and Pop Surrealism

We all know Tim Burton for his stylistic movies such as the Corpse Bride pictured above, but for all of you who are as curious as me as to what else he has been up to in his life, there is a great show going on right now at MoMA in NYC. Taking inspiration from popular culture, Burton's work on display include drawings, paintings, photographs, moving image works, concept art, storyboards, puppets, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic ephemera from such films as Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Batman, Mars Attacks!, Ed Wood, and Beetlejuice, and from unrealized and little-known personal projects that reveal his talent as an artist, illustrator, photographer, and writer working in the spirit of Pop Surrealism.
