PopRally invites you to an intimate viewing of the Tim Burton exhibition, followed by a special variety show inspired by the unique vision of Burton and his collaborators. Comedian Max Silvestri will play ringmaster to a cavalcade of performers, including improvisers Rebecca Drysdale and Jeff Hiller, comedians David Rees and Sam Anderson, Jon Glaser, comedian/musician Reggie Watts, music from Brigham Brough and Wyndham Garnett of Elvis Perkins in Dearland and others, and surprises galore.
Taking inspiration from popular culture, Tim Burton has reinvented Hollywood genre filmmaking as an expression of personal vision, garnering for himself an international audience of fans and influencing a generation of young artists working in film, video, and graphics. This exhibition explores the full range of his creative work, tracing the current of his visual imagination from early childhood drawings through his mature work in film.
Exhibition viewing and cocktail reception starts at 7:00 p.m. and ends at 8:30 p.m.
Theater program begins promptly at 8:30 p.m.
