Guillermo del Toro is one of the most inventive filmmakers of his generation. Among his internationally acclaimed films are Cronos, The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth. He seems to have reinvented the genres of horror, fantasy and science fiction. You will have the opportunity to be “At Home With Monsters” at the LA County Museum of Art from August 1 — November 27th& explore his first museum retrospective. This diverge range of media — including sculptures, paintings ,photography, books & film totals over 500 objects, and reflects del Toro’s inspirations.
Being a horror aficionado myself (I was born on Halloween), I found del Toro’s life-long love affair with Dr. Frankenstein fascinating; and you must experience his “Rain Room” in Bleak House, which stimulates a perpetual thunderstorm. We are certain this exhibit will be packed prior to Oct. 31st, so hurry on down and be the first to experience this powerful presentation.
