From the Press Release
Guillermo Del Toro, is a true master of horror, but his influence and scope go far beyond that genre into the realms of fantasy and sci-fi. His films combine original concepts with gorgeous art direction and always an emphasis on storytelling. It’s the passion he pours into each project that sets his films apart in the eyes of his many fans, and the quality of his work helps illustrate that he is just as big a fan of this stuff as we are. Guillermo Del Toro has continuously brought our imaginations to dark and wondrous places, so it is an honor to present this art exhibit as a tribute to his legacy: Into the Labyrinth & Mind of Guillermo Del Toro.
Curated by Chogrin (of Cartoon Network’s “Regular Show”), this exhibit is a true labor of love and focuses on three films that, in our opinion, encompass the totality of Del Toro’s vision as both a writer and director: Cronos, The Devil’s Backbone, and Pan’s Labyrinth. Featuring only Latino/Spanish artists, this show is in response to the support which Guillermo has always given to artists and is a nod to his proud Mexican heritage. It is a thank you to Del Toro for the years of inspiration he has provided for all of us… and with his new film, Pacific Rim, opening this month as well as the Criterion Collection Blu-ray release of The Devil’s Backbone, it looks like we have many years of inspiration to look forward to in the future.
