Madrid plays host to the world première of an extraordinary immersive exhibition by the acclaimed American film director, Tim Burton.
The exhibition named The Labyrynth has been organised Burton himself runs until 15th January at the Espacio Ibercaja Delicias.
It aims to offer visitors a glimpse into the journey from inception to final production through his original sketches.
The acclaimed director and artist Tim Burton has become a benchmark and one of the most imaginative and visual filmmakers, thanks to his characteristic and amazing style in films such as Beetlejuice (1988), Batman (1989), Edward Scissorhands (1990), The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), The Corpse Bride (2005) or Alice in Wonderland (2010).
His most recent production,Wednesday (2022) is presently on release.
The Labyrinth is a project that mixes exhibition, immersive game and film set.
An experience that has been created in collaboration with Tim Burton himself and his team and whose crucial part of this “immersive game” is to offer a unique experience to each visitor who comes to enjoy it.
It would not be a labyrinth if you do not manage to get lost in it and choose your own path. Burton himself has defined it as a fantastic “fun fair” and as close as you can get to walking through the set of my films”.
The exhibition itself consists of 15 rooms, 7 of which are common and based on the director’s most iconic stories, where they can relive the sets of their favourite films through life-size sculptures, original paintings by the artist, multimedia art, costumes of his most acclaimed characters and immersive set design.
In total, each visitor will be able to see an average of 10 original works per room, some of them unpublished and never exhibited. This makes a total of 150 original works on each visit.
In addition to hosting the Labyrinth exhibition, Madrid City Council have made Burton an ambassador for the city.
Access to the Espacio Ibercaja Delicias can be found the side of the Madrid Railway Museum, Cl. del Párroco Eusebio Cuenca, 63.
