Tim Burton Retrospective at the MOMA


Tim Burton makes fantasy come to life. His work in film with movies such as Big Fish, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Beetlejuice have all become cult classics.

And his newest film is no exception. The Disney classic Alice in Wonderland in theaters March 5th, comes to life in 3D and from the previews it certainly has Burton’s magical touch to it.

For fans who want to see more of Burton’s work, the MOMA is featuring a retrospective on his work. The exhibit will showcase over 700 pieces including never-before-seen drawings, paintings, photographs, storyboards and more. During the course of the exhibition all of Burton’s 14 feature films will be screened in MoMA’s Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters, from Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure (1985) and Beetlejuice (1988) to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) and Sweeney Todd (2007), as well as some early short films.

The retrospective runs through April 26, 2010. Purchase tickets online at moma.com or in person. The MOMA notes that gallery occupancy is limited.
