Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
You'll find about 500 startling, horrifying and beautiful objects throughout the exhibition including sculpture, paintings, prints, photography, costumes, ancient artifacts, books, maquettes and film. In addition, the exhibition will draw some objects from the Pan's Labyrinth and Pacific Rim director's personal residence-meets-museum, Bleak House. The gallery themes should sound familiar to fans of Del Toro's whimsical horror films: childhood and innocence; Victoriana; magic, alchemy and the occult; movies, comics, pop culture; Frankenstein and horror; freaks and monsters; and death and the afterlife. In addition, one section will be dedicated to a version of Del Toro’s Rain Room—not to be confused with, you know, Rain Room—a favorite spot of his in Bleak House in which a false window and special effects simulate a perpetual thunderstorm.
