Tim Burton Retrospective in NYC

The accurately named CoolHunting blog has an interview with Ron Magliozzi, curator of the Tim Burton Retrospective at NYC’s MoMA.

Faced with the responsibility of being the first Museum to present so much previously unseen work from an artist as popular as Tim Burton, who luckily has saved much of what he’s done creatively since adolescence, we felt our first job was to provide some chronological and narrative structure to its exhibition.

We’ve attempted to accomplish this by organizing material under “Surviving Burbank” covering the years of Tim’s upbringing in Burbank, CA; “Beautifying Burbank” on his years as a student at CalArts and an apprentice animator and concept artist with the Walt Disney Company, including his early collaborations with sculptor and artist Rick Heinrichs, animator Joe Ranft and effects artist Stephen Chiodo; to “Beyond Burbank” for the years since his first feature, “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” (1985), to the present, when he’s called on a number of successful collaborators—costume designer Colleen Atwood, special effect make-up artist Stan Winston, character designers The Carlos Grangel Studio, puppet fabricators Mackinnon and Saunders and composer Danny Elfman—to bring his vision to the screen.
