Art Radar 11.19.09 - Tim Burton - MoMa
Art Radar- 11.19.09 – Tim Burton

Accompanied by the film exhibitions Tim Burton and Tim Burton and the Lurid Beauty of Monsters

Timed tickets are available for this exhibition at no extra cost. Simply select a specific date and time when you purchase your admission ticket online. Timed-ticket holders are guaranteed entry at the selected time. Untimed tickets do grant entry to the exhibition, but there may be a significant wait. Members and accompanying guests need not wait to enter Tim Burton. Simply present your membership card and/or member guest admission ticket at the exhibition entrance.

This major career retrospective on Tim Burton (American, b. 1958), consisting of a gallery exhibition and a film series, considers Burton’s career as a director, producer, writer, and concept artist for live-action and animated films, along with his work as a fiction writer, photographer and illustrator. Following the current of his visual imagination from early childhood drawings through his mature work, the exhibition presents artwork generated during the conception and production of his films, and highlights a number of unrealized projects and never-before-seen pieces, as well as student art, his earliest non-professional films, and examples of his work as a storyteller and graphic artist for non-film projects. The opposing themes of adolescence and adulthood, and the elements of sentiment, cynicism, and humor inform his work in a variety of mediums—drawings, paintings, storyboards, digital and moving-image formats, puppets and maquettes, props, costumes, ephemera, sketchbooks, and cartoons. Taking inspiration from sources in pop culture, Burton has reinvented Hollywood genre filmmaking as a spiritual experience, influencing a generation of young artists working in film, video, and graphics.

Art Radar -11.19.09-House of Industries

House Industries

House Industries will close its month-long Type as Object exhibition with a one-day fully-stocked pop-up shop on Thursday, November 19, 2009 at New York’s Type Directors Club.

Early holiday shoppers, House fans and design aficionados will find a fully-stocked shop with several new hand-pulled serigraphs, T-shirts and selections from their eclectic House Industries objects collection. The shop will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Then House Industries lettering and type guru, Ken Barber, will bring all of the alphabetical high concept back to earth with a lecture entitled “Letter as Image” from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., rounding out the all-day pop-up shop event. To further feed New York’s abecedarian obsessed, Ken will also give a full-day workshop (Letter as Image Workshop) at the Type Directors Club on Friday, November 20, 2009, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

“We’ve spent the last 16 years convincing otherwise mundane alphabetical forms that they can be both the medium and the message by giving them an illustrative flair,” said Barber. “In my lecture and subsequent workshop, I’ll give attendees a glimpse of House’s top-secret letter-making recipes and encourage over-moused hands to break out the pencils and pens again.”

Interested parties should contact the Type Directors Club directly at 212-633-8943 or email to register in advance for the lecture and workshop events. Space is limited.

SpY: The Spanish Banksy

The artist, who has come to be known as the Spanish Banksy, started as a graffiti artist in Madrid in the mid-Eighties. “By the beginning of the early Nineties he had established himself as the leading figure of the still-young state graffiti scene, offering works with an impeccable style and a solidity that even today are still not very common,” says Javier Abarca, an art critic and university professor specialising in urban art and subcultures.

SpY had outgrown graffiti by the mid-Nineties but continued to produce “public art” rather than gallery pieces. Like Banksy, he also remains anonymous. asked him about his past, his plans and whether we might be seeing flower-shaped road signs in London any time soon.

Walrus TV Artist Feature: Above Interview from “The Run Up”

Eventually you’re going to get there. It might take a day, it might take a lifetime, but through that persistence, and through that determination and drive, I think there’s definitely a lot of beauty in that. And a lot of power. That’s what I want to tap into.

Often found hanging from power lines or melding with urban architecture, Above’s site specific stencils, paintings, and installations push past the traditional expectations of graffiti. The evolution of his name from text to a symbol inspired him to explore less conventional media, leading to his trademark wooden mobiles. Whether subtle or massive, his pieces retain an innate sense of beauty through their dialogue with the surrounding environment. Refusing to show his work in galleries, Above has instead “toured” through Europe and North and South America to get his work up. Watch the interview from “The Run Up,” available for the first time to the public for free, on Walrus TV.

The video interview is the link below. Enjoy.
