If you’ve watched Wednesday on Netflix, a spinoff show from The Addams Family, then you’d know that the creator of that TV show is a genius.

Not just that, but Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice? They all speak for themselves. A peculiar but brilliant work of art in the film industry. It all came from the mind of Tim Burton.

For the first time in South East Asia, the mesmerizing world tour exhibition of Tim Burton makes its debut in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The exhibition will be held at the Bukit Jalil Pavilion from 21 March until 30 July 2023.
