Work of the famous film director Tim Burton will be exhibited from November 22, 2009–April 26, 2010 in the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
This major career retrospective on Tim Burton (American, b. 1958), consisting of a gallery exhibition and a film series, considers 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.
This very entertaining short film is narrated by Burton’s childhood hero and horror icon Vincent Price.
The opposing themes of adolescence and adulthood, and the elements of sentiment, cynicism, and humor inform his work in a variety of mediums—drawings, paintings, storyboards, digital and moving-image formats, puppets and maquettes, props, costumes, ephemera, sketchbooks, and cartoons.
