Guillermo del Toro: Crafting Pinocchio
at MoMa, until 15th April 2023

On view for two more weeks at MoMA is an exploration into stop-motion film and the creation of Del Toro’s first stop-motion animated feature. Puppets in various stages of completion accompany props and sets that the team crafted by hand, in multiple sizes to achieve the shots they needed throughout the film. Del Toro says: “In an era where everything is digital and people think when they see animation, they think computer. We are doing something hand-painted, hand-moulded, hand-created, and animated”.

Upcoming: Van Gogh’s Cypresses
at The Met, from 22nd May 2023

Starting on 22nd of May at The Met is a new exhibition that will solely focus on the trees which were in signature images by Vincent van Gogh. Juxtaposing landmark paintings with precious drawings and illustrated letters, many rarely, if ever, lent or exhibited together. This exhibition offers an opportunity to appreciate anew some of Van Gogh’s most celebrated works, in a context that reveals the backstory of their invention for the first time.
