After New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, Melbourne and Paris, the MoMA Tim Burton’s exhibition is now taking place at the Seoul Museum of Art until April 14th.
The exhibition is quite big and complete showing a total of 860 pieces including drawings, paintings, short films, sculptures, music and costumes that have been used in movies.
The exhibition is divided into three parts. The first part – Surviving Burbank covers his younger years from 1958 to 1976. The second, Beautifying Burbank, covers the years 1977 to 1984 including his time with Cal Arts and Walt Disney. The last part of the exhibition, Beyond Burbank, is showing the most productive years from 1985 to the present.
The original exhibition in New York was the third most visited show in MoMA history after the Picasso and Matisse shows. In Seoul it seems to be also a big success – everyone is talking about it and it’s very busy in the evenings and during the weekends.
Hurry up – it’s a great exhibition and not only kids love it 😉
