I was fortunate enough to attend Tim Burton: The Exhibition when it came to Melbourne in 2010. As I understand it, Melbourne's ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) was only the second venue to host the exhibition after MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art) in New York. I stood in a queue with my husband, son, and a friend for 3 hours (necessitating a couple of coffee runs, and an inevitable stampede to the bathrooms once we finally got inside) and was entertained along with the rest of the crowd by the sight of a headless horseman driving a coach, drawn by plumed horses, around the city streets. The long wait was definitely worth it, despite the fact that the Beetlejuice-style carousel exhibit broke down the day we were there, as we experienced a fabulous showcase of Tim Burton's work.
Of course, the flip side of the privilege of being one of the first cities to see the Tim Burton exhibition is that as it moves on around the globe, more memorabilia will naturally become available to go on show. The exhibition is currently taking place at La Cinematheque Francaise in Paris, and includes items from Tim Burton's upcoming Dark Shadows, including the red dress worn by Eva Green in the movie, and other costume accessories.
