The Alienist: Sketchbook to Screen Exhibit
Here is a cool FREE event to check out from January 13 to March 25, 2018:
"The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills will take visitors inside the opulent Gilded Age of the new TNT series, The Alienist, through multiple costume creations, photography, illustrations, and more from award-winning costume designer Michael Kaplan, the visionary behind the Star Wars sequel trilogy, Blade Runner, Fight Club, and Flashdance."
The Alienest will be an upcoming show on TNT which seams to feature murder mysteries and the mental patients of the Victorian era. It looks pretty creepy and intrigiung. Two things that make me want to check this out: Luke Evans and all the Victorian costuming!
The series is based off the book, The Alienist by Caleb Carr that was published 23 yrs ago. No surprise that Random House publishing will be re-releasing the book. So for those who have to read before the show or movie, make haste. The show will be premiering on Jan 22
More info on the website from the website:
isitors will have the exclusive opportunity to preview the series’s costumes and other artifacts before its TNT debut on January 22. An unflinching psychological thriller amidst the underbelly of New York City’s “Gilded Age,” The Alienist follows Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Brühl, Rush), a brilliant and obsessive “Alienist” in the controversial new field of treating mental pathologies, who holds the key to hunting down a never-before-seen ritualistic killer murdering young boys. Based on the award-winning, fan-favorite novel by Caleb Carr, with standout performances from Luke Evans (The Girl on the Train) and Dakota Fanning (American Pastoral), The Alienist is a gripping, turn-of-the-century murder mystery like none other: the story of the emergence of the world’s most powerful city that will stop at nothing to bury its darkest secrets.
The Alienist exhibit takes inspiration from the abstracted architectural and environmental features that are represented throughout the scenography of the series. The concept focuses those themes on one dominant and dramatic idea - suspension - to showcase the Gilded Age costumes and books in a unique and intriguing way.
"The Alienist will take visitors through the world of 1896 New York, a place where mystery lies beneath a glittering surface,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “It’s an honor to present this incredible exhibit that captures the mood of TNT’s highly anticipated new series."
