The long-awaited exhibition of Tim Burton is already here. The American filmmaker behind movies such as “Beetlejuice” (1988), “Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas” (1993) and “Alice in Wonderland” (2010) is sure to please fans in Mexico as it allows us to take a peek behind the curtains of his creative genius to reveal the versatility he transmits through his unique and timeless vision.

In this exhibition, you can find drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, and many surprises more which will help you become familiar with Burton's artistic dimension, not only of his films but also of personal works that go as far back as his childhood.
