Tim Burton - The Exhibition @ ACMI Melbourne

2 weekends ago, we visited the crazy and genius mind of Tim Burton at ACMI

I was quite excited as I've watched many of his creations...

It's a bonus that I love Johnny Depp and this in no way influenced my decision to see this exhibition (IT DOESN'T!!)

I think the fact that no photos were allowed in the exhibition itself... it allowed me to give my full attention to the images and creations presented inside...

I wasn't distracted by, "OH MY GOD.. I have to take this shot" moments...

I could enjoy and take it all in...

Besides, I'd knocked myself out taking every little Tim Burton-ish images on the outside...

The Boy and Cousin A were more into the Bat mobile than I was... but I took pictures anyway ^_^

The entrance to the exhibition was really cute!

TOXIC BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Upon coming out, I wanted to buy each and every little figurine I could get my hands on... but managed to walk away empty handed...


I would definitely recommend this if you are a Tim Burton fan, or a fan of Gothic art... or just into macabre fun stuff...

What's inside?
- Sketches and drawings compiled through the years (includes doodles)
- A weird video of a Japanese adaptation of Tim's work (plus things from the set)
- ZERO! and other interesting things from Nightmare before Christmas
- Alice in Wonderland costumes
- Beetlejuice facts
- Batman facts and costume
- Edward Scissorhand costume
- Sleepy Hollow costume

Obviously, this is only a glimpse of the things but it's an incredible collection of doodlings and art from Tim's high school years straight through to what he is doing today.

WE did go on a busy Sunday and we took about 1.5 hours to complete it... might take a bit longer if you are the type to watch/listen/see everything there is in there =)

  1. I love Tim B!

    This exhibit was in NY not long ago- I wrote a post about it-

    The Salvador Dali museum in Figures has the same kind of 'enter the artwork' doorway-

    Very cool!
