NSFK? The exhibit might appear to be kid-friendly, judging by the huge inflatable "Balloon Boy" in the lobby and the show's monster-mouth entrance. But it's only for kids in the way that his Alice in Wonderland is--that is, for kids who don't mind a trip to the dark side.
What I like about the collection is one thing the New York Times apparently didn't: it includes many drawings from his teenage years at Cal Arts and the four years when he worked as an animator for Disney. Interesting to see how his work develops, though his theme never veers from "revenge of the nerd" in brilliantly executed characters like Stainboy whose superpower is leaving powerful stains, Toxic Boy whose fumes burn the beard off Santa, and of course, Edward Scissorhands. There's paintings, sculptures, photographs and short films on flat screens. And, oh yes, a topiary deer in the garden.
