Opening this Sunday in New York City is Tim Burton‘s retrospective show at Museum Of Modern Art. With art works pre-dating back to his film days and his career spanning 27 years in Hollywood, this is the most comprehensive collection up to date. ‘On display are the familiar works, such as costumes and set illustrations for blockbusters such as BatmanBeetlejuiceEdward Scissorhands, and Mars Attacks!’  With installations never seen by the public on show, the exhibition includes Burton’s personal notebooks and early experimental films he created during his days as a student. 

Freshness Mag state ‘The exhibition starts on the Lower Level of the museum, where screenings of 14 films by Tim Burton will take place. It is then followed by a Polaroid project created by Burton himself, along with a showcase of film posters on the 2 level galleries. On the 1st Floor, sketches, drawings, stop-motion animation, as well as a deer-shaped topiary (garden art), inspired by the film Edward Scissorhands, are on display. Overlook the entire floor, literally, is Balloon Boy, a 21-foot tall, 8-foot in diameter installation created for the event. Finally, the exhibition ends off at the 3rd Floor, an extravagant exhibit reflecting Burton’s talents and life, in a triptych-like layout of Surviving BurbankBeautifying Burbank, and finally Beyond Burbank.’

The exhibition will be on show until the 26th April 2010. See below for inside images from the exhibit.
