David Cronenberg Toronto

Major Cronenberg exhibit coming to TIFF Lightbox

The Cronenberg Project is about to take over the TIFF Lightbox. A portion of the venue will morph into a shrine honouring the great Canadian filmmaker. The main aspect of the exhibit will be a film called "David Cronenberg: Evolution," which, predictably, traces the artist's development. There's also an "experiential virtual museum," which sounds kind of scary, and which will include "a full retrospective of Cronenberg's films."

There will be pieces on display from various films, including costumes, props, art work, and set design drawings. Film geeks can drool over the helmet from Videodrome, surgical tools from Dead Ringers, and leg braces from Crash, amongst others.

The virtual exhibition will include essays, academic writing, behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with Cronenberg's many collaborators.

The show will run from Nov. 1 until Jan. 19, 2014, and once TIFF is done with it, the exhibit will pack its bags for some international travel. Stay tuned for dates and locations.
