Tim Burton MoMA exhibit coming to Toronto


A Tim Burton retrospective will be the first Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) exhibit to travel to Toronto in over 20 years. Opening at the TIFF Lightbox on November 26, it's bound to be wildly popular. The New York show, somewhat surprisingly, had the third highest attendance numbers in MoMA's history.

Here's the official exhibition blurb:

"After spectacularly successful engagements at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Tim Burton arrives at TIFF Bell Lightbox with a new look: a special commission created especially for our gallery windows and an entirely revamped exhibition design. More than 700 items form the core of the show, which traces Burton's development as a major creative force from his earliest drawings and paintings to the sophisticated elements he created for some of the world's most treasured films. A full film retrospective will accompany the show, as well as collateral learning opportunities for all ages.

The exhibition will contemplate Burton's career as a director, producer, writer and concept artist for live-action and animated films, along with his work as a fiction writer, photographer and illustrator."
