20 eerie photos of the new David Cronenberg exhibit

Posted by Christine Brooks / November 1, 2013

David Cronenberg TIFFDavid Cronenberg: Evolution is an all-encompassing retrospective of the Toronto-raised director's prolific career. Having been planned for the last two years by CEO and Director Piers Handling and Artistic Director Noah Cowan, with help from Cronenberg himself, it seems fitting that Evolution is the first major touring exhibition from TIFF.

Over the last 30 years, TIFF has continuously supported Cronenberg's films while he has in turn supported the festival and its transformation into a year round cultural institution. On display are amazing and rare objects, photos, posters, and sketches, all of which let you delve into the unique process that goes into the making of a Cronenberg film.

Check out this photo gallery for 20 highlights from the exhibit.
