Lovers of the bizarre and brilliant work of Tim Burton: this one’s for you. A huge exhibition dedicated to one of the most celebrated filmmakers in the world will be landing in London next year. ‘The World of Tim Burton‘ is currently on a decade-long, worldwide tour and will be finishing said tour at London’s Design Museum.
Whether you’re a die-hard fan or just a little bit curious; the exhibition will give you a deep-dive into the artistic creations of Burton, drawing from his personal archives. From Beetlejuice and The Corpse Bride to Wednesday and Edward Scissorhands; you’ll be able to delve right in to the gothic, fantasy worlds he’s created over the course of his career.
The exhibition has been curated by Jenny He in collaboration with Tim Burton and has been especially adapted for the Design Museum by Maria McLintock. As well as exploring his iconic cinematic work, visitors will have the chance to discover some of his lesser-known creations.
From sketchbooks and storyboards to paintings and photography work; this will be a unique opportunity to get an up-close-and-personal peek into Burton’s perfectly peculiar imagination. Certainly not one to be missed.
The World of Tim Burton will run at the Design Museum from October 25, 2024 – April 21, 2025.
