Tim Burton: The Exhibition


Tim Burton: The Exhibition

Jun 24 - Oct 10 2010

Tracing Burton's visual imagination from his earliest childhood drawings through his mature work in film, the exhibition Tim Burton brings together over 700 examples of rarely or never-before-seen drawings, paintings, photographs, storyboards, moving-image works, puppets, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic ephemera, and includes an extensive film series spanning his 27-year career.

  • Until October 2010, ACMI hosts a unique exhibition direct from The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York. An Australian exclusive, Tim Burton: The Exhibition  is a landmark exhibition charting Tim Burton's creative vision and process from his earliest work to the spectacular Alice in Wonderland.

    Curated in direct collaboration with Burton, the exhibition brings together over 700 works, including paintings, drawings, puppets, costumes, storyboards and film. Discover the elements of gothic fantasy, dark humour and motifs that characterise Burton's work as director, concept artist, illustrator and photographer.

    As part of Tim Burton: The Exhibition, ACMI asked you to help us construct a fantastical online gallery of Burton-inspired artwork. View all the entries submitted on ACMI’s Flickr page
