David Cronenberg to be the subject of Toronto exhibit, set to launch in 2013

TORONTO - An exhibition celebrating the works of acclaimed Canuck filmmaker David Cronenberg is coming to Toronto.

The Toronto International Film Festival says it plans to mount the Cronenberg show in Fall 2013 at TIFF Bell Lightbox.

Co-curated by TIFF director and CEO Piers Handling and artistic director Noah Cowan, the event will include a film program and a newly commissioned reality game as well as props, artifacts, documentation and audio-visual interviews. TIFF says a parallel art project is also in the works.

Known for his dark, edgy subject matter, Cronenberg's films include "The Fly," "Crash," "A History of Violence" and last year's Freudian psycho-drama "A Dangerous Method."

Organizers note that the announcement about the TIFF exhibit comes as Cronenberg prepares to debut his hotly anticipated film "Cosmopolis" at the Cannes Film Festival. The movie stars Robert Pattinson.

TIFF says the Cronenberg project marks the first time they have curated an original exhibition of this scope. It's set to go on tour beginning summer 2014.

Said Handling in a statement: "David Cronenberg is one of the world's greatest living filmmakers. He also represents Canadian cinema at its very best. This exhibition underscores our commitment to Canadian film and its legacy, through our 20-year history of working with David to preserve his papers and objects in a special archive, and our efforts to restore and make available his film catalogue."
