This catalogue accompanies "The World of Tim Burton", a major immersive exhibition set up at the The National Museum of Cinema in Turin, an exclusive journey into the mind of a creative genius. This exploration of Tim Burton’s artistic output, inimitable style, and specific perspective is divided into nine thematic sections showcasing more than 500 original works of art, some never before seen in public, ranging from the early days of his career to his most recent projects: sketches, paintings, drawings, photographs, films, concept art, storyboards, costumes, maquettes, puppets, and life-size sculptural installations. The evocative setting, the reproduction of which also finds space in these pages, encourages visitors to immerse themselves in the director’s extraordinary creative universe. The catalogue and the exhibition trace the evolution of the unique visual imagination of a multi-dimensional postmodern artist—an autobiography of sorts explored through his limitless creative process. Transcending both medium and format, it becomes clear how ideas, themes, and even some specific images of Tim Burton’s art are to be found in his most iconic films, which we now associate with the glitz of cinematic show business.
