Organised by Toybox Projects Sdn Bhd in conjunction with partners Eurasian Entertainment Consultants Ltd and KOL Nation Sdn Bhd, and supported by venue partner, Pavilion Bukit Jalil, The World of Tim Burton focuses on the distinctive characters and worlds that could only come from Tim Burton’s singular imagination.

Comprised of approx. 540 works—including signature pieces from the Tim Burton retrospective as well as over 150 new works not seen in the MoMA exhibition tour—The World of Tim Burton gives new audiences an opportunity to experience Burton’s art in person for the first time and treats familiar visitors to an in-depth look further into his sensibility.

With over 800,000 visitors, the premiere of Burton’s art exhibition in New York was the third highest-attended exhibition in MoMA’s history. This sparked the inception of The World of Tim Burton, a re-conceptualized exhibition that mirrors MoMA’s success designed specifically for touring the world. The World of Tim Burton tour stops have included institutions such as the Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Seoul Korea; City Gallery Prague: The Stone Bell, Czech Republic; the Mori Arts Center Gallery, Tokyo, Japan; the Max Ernst Museum, Brühl, Germany; the Museum of Image and Sound, São Paulo, Brazil; ArtisTree Gallery, Hong Kong; and Museo Franz Mayer, Mexico City, Mexico.

The exhibition features numerous works from Tim Burton’s early ages to the most recent project across mediums of sketches, paintings, drawings, photographs, maquettes and puppets he used for his film works, and life-sized sculptures. Along with the artist’s signature figure of Balloon Boy at the entrance of the exhibition are numerous, remarkable sculptures that were newly designed specifically for the exhibition.
