Breaking Bad Exhibit

Museum of the Moving Image will present “From Mr. Chips to Scarface: Walter White’s Transformation in Breaking Bad,” an exhibit featuring costumes, props, and video material from the highly acclaimed AMC television series. The exhibit will be on view through October 27.

At the heart of the series is Bryan Cranston, who won three consecutive Emmy Awards for Best Actor for his portrayal of Walter White. A mild-mannered chemistry teacher, White learns that he has inoperable lung cancer, and begins producing the drug methamphetamine (“crystal meth”) to insure his family’s financial future. This Museum exhibit explores his startling transformation throughout the series, as he becomes increasingly amoral and ruthless in his new persona, Heisenberg.

Among the objects on view are several costumes worn by Cranston: the yellow Oxford shirt and khaki pants typical of White’s daily wear; the black pork pie hat, black jacket and pants, and green shirt favored by White’s alias, Heisenberg; the briefs worn by White during his first methamphetamine-making session, and the hazmat suit, gas mask, apron, and boots used in subsequent “cooking” scenes. Props include those relating to White’s cancer treatment—pharmaceuticals, PET scan, strands of loose hair (the result of his chemotherapy)—as well as objects featured in pivotal scenes in the series, including the pink teddy bear and Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass. Also on view will be selected clips from the series, and behind-the-scenes footage.
