Screens in tandem with Tim Burton: The Exhibition
From German Expressionism to Grand Guignol, through stop-motion classics, '50s sci-fi, British Hammer and studio-era Hollywood horror films, Vincent Price and Ray Harryhausen, this season, spanning six decades, assembles a constellation of actors, genres and motifs that have informed, inspired and enriched director Tim Burton's wondrous visual aesthetic.
"Monster movies are my form of myth, of fairy tale. I linked those monsters, and Edgar Allan Poe, to direct feelings. I didn't read fairy tales, I watched them" Tim Burton
