Tim Burton: Art in all its forms, exhibition
This event has now finished
The unusual Mr. Burton.
Following the MoMA in New York, where the exhibition was a resounding success, Tim Burton has chosen the Cinematheque to unveil his work to the European public!
Better known as a filmmaker, Tim Burton, the gentle Hollywood troublemaker who shook up conventions (particularly with Batman), supplied contemporary mainstream cinema with a welcome breath of fresh air. Less well known is his work as an illustrator and photographer, heir to Edgar Allan Poe, the Surrealists, and constantly reinterpreting popular culture (including the small masterpiece that is The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy, and fantasy such as The Nightmare Before Christmas).
Drawings, paintings, storyboards, models, costumes, film clips ... this exhibition is a unique opportunity to appreciate the extent of his artistic output. Visitors can discover the originality of his early work produced when he was a teenager in suburban Los Angeles, and later as a student at the prestigious school of CalArts created by Disney. There's behind the scenes footage of all his films, and films in super 8 or 16mm, early works digitised for the occasion.
