Mexico City, Mexico — The World of Tim Burton officially opens in Mexico City with an expo of the famous director’s movies.
American director Tim Burton is in Mexico to inaugurate The World of Tim Burton, an exhibition that will open its doors to the public from December 6 until April 2018, at the Franz Mayer Museum of CDMX.
About 500 paintings, sculptural installations, puppets and moving images that illuminate the artistic practice of the American, not only of his films, but also of his personal projects that run from his childhood until today, are part of this exhibition.
Curated in sections that highlight its themes and motifs, this exhibition immerses visitors in the unique world of the director and producer. Jenny He, the curator responsible for shaping the exhibition, has been on the scene to ensure everything is in place prior to the opening of the doors at the Franz Mayer Museum.
“We know that Tim Burton has a lot of fans in Mexico, so we are very excited to bring his exhibition to the country. There are many aspects of the show that will be presented exclusively here in the country,” said Jenny He, during a press conference.
“The exhibition is divided into thematic sections. Some gather objects of unknown or unfinished work, “explained He. “Maybe his way of reflecting his drawings shows an internal triggered dialogue. Tim captures his art in film or on paper, but always with emotion. ”
Drawings, paintings, installations of sculptures, figurines and moving images, in addition to his drawings on napkins or the illustrated series The melancholy death of the Oyster Boy will be part of Tim Burton’s world, which according to the organizers, will receive 3,000 visitors per day, during the four months of the exhibition.
