Whacky, Wonderful Whimsy

I was a guest at the Herald Sun's special viewing last night of the Tim Burton exhibition at Melbourne's Australian Centre for the Moving Image.

This exhibit was previously at the MoMA in New York and was the third most popular exhibit ever – after Matisse and Picasso.

It has over 700 drawings, paintings, storyboards, puppets and costumes.

The clever curator gave a fascinating insight into Burton's personal involvement in the exhibit, reporting that at the opening he marvelled: "It's dark down here. I like it."

My favourite drawings were:

  • persecution complex

  • full bottle in front of me or a frontal lobotamy

This is a must-see exhibit-- and don't miss the free Screen Worlds while at ACMI, which houses alot of interactive fun.
