This major career retrospective on Tim Burton (American\, b. 1958)\, consisting of a gallery exhibition and a film series\, considers B urton's career as a director\, producer\, writer\, and concept artist for l ive-action and animated films\, along with his work as a fiction writer\, p hotographer and illustrator. Following the current of his visual imaginatio n from early childhood drawings through his mature work\, the exhibition pr esents artwork generated during the conception and production of his films\ , and highlights a number of unrealized projects and never-before-seen piec es\, as well as student art\, his earliest non-professional films\, and exa mples of his work as a storyteller and graphic artist for non-film projects . The opposing themes of adolescence and adulthood\, and the elements of se ntiment\, cynicism\, and humor inform his work in a variety of mediums—draw ings\, paintings\, storyboards\, digital and moving-image formats\, puppets and maquettes\, props\, costumes\, ephemera\, sketchbooks\, and cartoons. Taking inspiration from sources in pop culture\, Burton has reinvented Holl ywood genre filmmaking as a spiritual experience\, influencing a generation of young artists working in film\, video\, and graphics.
