What do iconic films Beetlejuice, Corpse Bride, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Edward Scissorhands, and Batman (1989) have in common? Yep, that’s right! Tim Burton is the director of these movies! And fans of Time Burton will be happy to know that the filmmaker is bringing one of his exhibitions to Kuala Lumpur this March!

The World of Tim Burton exhibit, which is visiting Southeast Asia for the first time, will be set up at Pavilion Bukit Jalil on 21 March and will run until 30 July.

Having premiered in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York back in 2009, the art exhibit attracted over 800,000 visitors, making it the third highest-attended exhibition in MoMA's history.

Now making a debut in Malaysia, the exhibition will feature around 540 works, including signature pieces from the Tim Burton retrospective as well as over 150 new works not seen in the MoMA exhibition tour!

Divided into 10 thematic sections, you can expect to see sketches, paintings, drawings, photographs, maquettes and puppets Tim Burton used for his film works, as well as life-sized sculptures categorised according to his five-decade career.

The exhibit is organised by Toybox Projects in partnership with Eurasian Entertainment Consultants Ltd and KOL Nation.

Aside from KL, the World of Tim Burton tour will also be stopping by Seoul, South Korea; Prague, Czech Republic; Tokyo, Japan; Brühl, Germany; São Paulo, Brazil; Hong Kong; and Mexico City, Mexico.
