Hot Art: Tim Burton Tribute

Tim Burton's Untitled (#6)

NOVEMBER 26 TO APRIL 17 The recent opening of the TIFF Bell Lightbox finally created a permanent Toronto showcase for the art of cinema. What better way to celebrate this feat than with a huge exhibition by one of the medium’s contemporary visual masters. Here, more than 700 pieces explore the creative development of American director Tim Burton, whose quirky mix of whimsy and the macabre in such movies as Ed Wood and A Nightmare Before Christmas have made him one of the world’s best-known filmmakers. Organized by the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the display features everything from paintings and drawings to puppets and costumes, and is enhanced by retrospective screenings of the auteur’s distinctive films.
