An Early Look at MoMA’s Tim Burton Retrospective

0730burtonexhibit.jpg

A nifty feature over at Art Info who just this week headed to a very, very early press preview for the MoMA‘s upcoming Tim Burton retrospective. Although the exhibit won’t kick off until around Thanksgiving weekend (thus solidifying a massive opening weekend for the museum), the MoMA seems rightly eager to get the word out early. The collection will feature hundreds of pieces, from artwork the director has created to rarely-seen short films to storyboards and various other pieces attached to his larger, well-known movies. Burton was there at the museum for the press tour and explained a bit of the process in assembling the sure-to-be-popular exhibition:

…he had not looked at most of the pieces for years and described the experience as a “reenergizing process” and a way of reconnecting with himself. Apparently, he essentially gave [Assistant Film Curator Ron Magliozzi] free rein over his archives, allowing MoMA to pull what it wished for the show.
