In just a few short weeks, I will be going to see the Tim Burton Exhibition at MoMa and I am super excited.
This exhibition explores the full range of his creative work, tracing the current of his visual imagination from early childhood drawings through his mature work in film. It brings together over seven hundred examples of rarely or never-before-seen drawings, paintings, photographs, moving image works, concept art, storyboards, puppets, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic ephemera from such films as Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Batman, Mars Attacks!, Ed Wood, and Beetlejuice, and from unrealized and little-known personal projects that reveal his talent as an artist, illustrator, photographer, and writer working in the spirit of Pop Surrealism.
He made so many of my favorite films growing up and when I first heard about this exhibit it in an article from Wired a few months back, I just knew that I had to go. My mom who is also a big fan of all of Tim Burton’s work will be joining me.
This should be really cool, so definitely expect an update. The exhibit will be showing through April 26th, so that should give you plenty of time to plan your own trip!
