Tim Burton Exhibition Opens Next Month

An exhibition that explores Tim Burton’s artistic development is coming to Toronto. Noah Cowan, Artistic Director of the TIFF Bell Lightbox, has announced the Tim Burton exhibition will open at the TIFF Bell Lightbox on Nov. 26 2010, running until April 17, 2011. Tickets go on sale this month on Oct. 26.

Organized by New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the exhibition will explore the filmmaker’s creative vision. It will feature everything from Burton’s early work to graphic art and text.

“We are absolutely delighted to bring this extraordinary exhibition to Canada,” said Piers Handling TIFF's CEO and Director, in a statement. “This is the first MoMA show to come to Toronto in over 20 years and we look forward to continued partnership with them as well as cultural organizations around the world to present such exciting world-class exhibitions in Canada.”

A film retrospect featuring a number of Burton’s acclaimed films is set to run parallel to the exhibition. Among the films is Edward Scissorhands, which will open the retrospect, followed by the animated movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. The films featured in the retrospect, celebrating Burton’s 27-year career, are each expected to run at least two times.

“Tim Burton’s visual style is unquestionably unique, loved by millions of fans and has been highly influential in multiple creative spheres. When we first heard of the show, we were convinced it was the perfect marriage of film and the visual arts and the perfect way to bring new audiences into our major exhibitions space,” Cowan said in a statement. “TIFF Bell Lightbox will offer even more, supplementing this incredible exhibition with a significant companion film programme and innovative family activities offering audiences a unique opportunity to connect with Burton’s creative process.”

TIFF will also present Burton-related workshops. Parents can bring their kids to a number of free drop-in workshops starting November 27, including one that teaches kids how to create their own characters from craft supplies. A few registered workshops will also be offered, including a writing workshop and a set construction workshop.
