After  its wildly successful residency at LACMA ,Guillermo del Toro  bring his ” At Home with Monsters ” Exhibition to MIA .Here is the official description from the museums website:

“Taking inspiration from Guillermo del Toro’s extraordinary imagination, this unique exhibition reveals his creative process through a collection of paintings, drawings, maquettes, artifacts, and concept film art, all culled from Bleak House, his creative haven and cherished home base located in Los Angeles.

Rather than a traditional chronology or filmography, the exhibition is organized thematically, beginning with visions of death and the afterlife; continuing through explorations of magic, occultism, horror, and monsters; and concluding with representations of innocence and redemption.

Beginning with Cronos (1993) and continuing through The Devil’s Backbone (2001)Hellboy (2004)Pan’s Labyrinth (2006)Pacific Rim (2013), and Crimson Peak (2015), among many other film, television, and book projects, Guillermo del Toro has reinvented the genres of horror, fantasy, and science fiction. Working with a team of craftsmen, artists, and actors—and referencing a wide range of cinematic, pop-culture, and art-historical sources—del Toro recreates the lucid dreams he experienced as a child in Guadalajara, Mexico.

This exhibition was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Minneapolis Institute of Art, and Art Gallery of Ontario.”

The exhibition opens to the public this Sunday March 5th and runs until Sunday May 28th 2017.
