Imagine Guillermo del Toro invited you over to his home, known as Bleak House, for a quick tour. He would show you all his “beautiful monsters,” and you'd be able to flick through his notebooks and wind his automatons. Co-organized/co-curated by Britt Salvesen at LACMA, Jim Shedden at AGO, and Matthew Welch at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, “Guillermo del Toro: At Home With Monsters” runs through Nov. 27 in LACMA's Art of the Americas Building, plaza level. The exhibition has eight themed sections, including Death and the Afterlife, Victoriana, and Freaks and Monsters. Each room explores another facet of Del Toro and his work, with all of the artwork chosen from the private collection of the director of Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy and Crimson PeakThroughout the exhibition LACMA will offer screenings of Del Toro's work as well as films he has selected, as well as artist walkthroughs of the exhibit. The exhibit will travel to Minneapolis and Ontario, Canada, after its run in L.A. All photos by Star Foreman.
