Guillermo del Toro: Crafting Pinocchio
Guillermo del Toro: Crafting Pinocchio is a celebration and exploration of the inventiveness, passion and artistic cooperation that goes into making a cinematic vision come to life. Now streaming on Netflix, the movie Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio was ten years in the making and conceived for international audiences of all ages. The film highlights the importance of nonconformity and the love and understanding passed between parents and children—and above all, showcases the incredible passion that del Toro, co-director Mark Gustafson, and their team bring to the art of stop-motion animation. With voice talents from Tilda Swinton, Cate Blanchett, Ewan McGregor and a soundtrack by Nick Cave and Alexandre Desplat, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio has been given extraordinary critical praise, with many already deeming it a “masterpiece.” This exhibition is coming to Portland from The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, where it is on view through April 15, 2023.
The Portland Art Museum’s presentation of Guillermo del Toro: Crafting Pinocchio will expand on the richness of the local stop-motion animation community by giving visitors a look inside the artists’ process. The exhibition and programs will give special attention to the talent and creative collaboration of the local cinematic animation artists at ShadowMachine—a renowned stop-motion animation studio based here in Portland, Oregon, a city increasingly recognized as a creative hub of the artform.
