For the first time in nearly a decade, renowned film director and animator Tim Burton will stage an exhibition of his original fine art in the United States.
Installed at the Neon Museum in Las Vegas, “Tim Burton @ the Neon Museum” will be staged at multiple locations: the museum’s outdoor Boneyard exhibition space, in its North Gallery and at the City of Las Vegas’ Boneyard Park across from the museum’s visitor’s center. The exhibition will comprise a combination of new work as well as previously exhibited pieces and will be on view from October 15, 2019, through February 15, 2020.
Created to take advantage of the museum’s unique open-air exhibition spaces, the large-scale installation works will be integrated with the museum’s collection. Burton intends for the exhibition to serve as a retrospective of his own creative history, as well as a celebration of his affection for the Neon Museum. Conceived as a collaboration with the museum, it will be genuinely site-specific and unlike any other exhibition Burton has ever staged.
