Inside there were the most inspiring sketches and cartoons to be seen, as well as a black light installation (a black light tunnel and yes, my hair and alice in wonderland tights lit up like a xmas tree..lol).
Talking about wearable: you never guess what had a prominent spot in the exhibit: an ANGORA sweater !!!!!! and ofcourse the rabbit in the waistcoat and the pocketwatch from Alice in Wonderland….hmmm loved it!
A feast for the senses, Tim Burton: The Exhibition is the largest temporary exhibition to ever be staged at ACMI. Curated in three thematic sections; Surviving Burbank, Beautifying Burbank and Beyond Burbank; the exhibition includes several elements not previously seen at MoMA. I loved the exhibition so much I’ll most certainly be returning before it closes on the 10th of October.
We ventured into the regular free exhibit at ACMI as well and saw the Mad Max car, costumes from ned Kelly and th edress in the movie Elizabeth worn by Cate Blanchett (equally TINY!?..lol) , the autographed script of Shine and some costume props of Pirates of the Caribbean as well as some very fun interactive stuff ! It was a great morning ! and ofcourse St Kilda won the footy match that afternoon so Paul could not have been happier !
Suffice it to say that I was feeling much better because the viruses were probably scared off by some of Tims artwork (or the footy....) so I have been dyeing some new lush fibres and spinning some yarns as well.
