“Hole”, de Courtney Love, inspira exposición de arte.

Filled with paintings, drawings and a few unexpected sculptures, Pretty on the Inside brings together different generations of artists who work with Pop and cartoon imagery. From Peter Saul and Karl Wirsum, who are known for their acid-colored works from the the 1960s, to a street artist like KAWS, who is more commonly associated nowadays with vinyl toys and Hennessy bottles, the works in the exhibition showcase the fun, liveliness and also the beauty of comic and cartoon-based art. With the various generations of artists, its obvious that KAWS and Parker envisioned the exhibition as a landmark, but the trendiness of the 1990s nostalgia ingrained in the theme weakens the enduring power of the show.
