Tim Burton - The Exhibition | Melbourne | ACMI
After a season at the MOMA New York, The Tim Burton exhibition has arrived in Australia. My daughter and I headed to Melbourne to check it out. Even before you step through the doors of the exhibition you know you are in for a treat with the displays that surround the entrance at the ACMI.
Inside, the Exhibition is full of wonders that have filled the mind of Tim Burton since his school years, "Surviving Burbank" to his latest film "Alice in Wonderland." There is so much to see and take in including illustrations, figures, costumes, and rarely seen short films.
The Burtonarum will delight all ages, a carnival tent buried deep in the forest which feature glowing Burtonesque creatures and little peep holes. You will glow as well.
If you are taking young children, take the kids exhibition trail which sides steps Sleepy Hollow and other films that they may find too scary.
We both loved the exhibition and found it very inspiring.
It is not too be missed!
