Over the years, movie director Tim Burton has reinvented filmmaking in Hollywood. Taking inspiration from pop culture, fairy tales and gothic tradition, he has incorporated these elements into his work as an expression of his own personal vision and developed a unique new genre in the process. A brand new retrospective exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art explores the full range of Burton’s creative work, not only as a film director, but also as an artist, illustrator, photographer and writer. The exhibition will contain a wide range of objects borrowed from various studio archives and private collections including more than 700 drawings, paintings, photographs, storyboards, costumes and other objects. The retrospective is scheduled to be on display from May 29 through October 31, 2011.
