A new exhibit at the Museum of the Moving Image will celebrate the life and works of Martin Scorsese, with more than 600 items on display related to the acclaimed director including original screenplays, personal photos, costumes and props from his films.
Museum-goers will be able to see the costume Cate Blanchett wore in "The Aviator," Robert De Niro's boxing gloves from "Raging Bull," storyboards from "Mean Streets" and "New York, New York," and the dining room table and chairs from Scorsese's childhood home, according to the museum.
"It explores his inspirations, creative process, and significant collaborations, offering comprehensive insight into Scorsese's career as an unparalleled screen stylist and a tireless champion of cinema," the museum said in press release about the exhibit, which opens Sunday.
It will be accompanied by a retrospective showing all of Scorsese's movies at the museum in the coming months, some of which will include appearances by people who've worked with the filmmaker, organizers said.
The first six screenings will take place from Dec. 16 to 30 and will feature the director's more recent films, including "Shutter Island," "The Wolf of Wall Street," "The Departed" and "Gangs of New York."
"Martin Scorsese has been a great American director since the 1970s," David Schwartz, the museum’s chief curator, said in a statement. "We wanted to start our retrospective with his most recent films, to show that he continues to be a vital force in American cinema."
The collection is the first major exhibit to focus on the director, and was previously displayed at several museums in Europe, according to organizers. It will be on display at the Museum of the Moving Image through April 23.
