Director Tim Burton is known for his fantastical view of the world showcased in movies like Edward Scissorhands, Mars Attacks, Sweeney Todd and many other films. His distinctive screen style, equal parts creepy and whimsical, bizarre and sentimental, is the end result of a deeply inventive imagination. Burton will bring a different kind of creative output to New York's Museum of Modern Art this fall. Burton's artistic efforts including drawings, storyboards, costumes, puppets and paintings, some related to his movies and others related to non-film projects. The exhibit of more than 700 pieces was organized by Ron Magliozzi, Assistant Curator, and Jenny He, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Film, with Rajendra Roy, the Celeste Bartos Chief Curator of Film. The Tim Burton retrospective
will run from November 22 through April 26, 2010.
