Cinephiles in Los Angeles on business can now indulge their love for the late, great filmmaker Stanley Kubrick at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art‘s new exhibition titled, simply, “Stanley Kubrick.” There are more than 1,000 artifacts on display in the exhibit, almost all of which was taken from Kubrick’s personal archives.
The exhibit will be at LACMA till June 30, 2013.
Here’s the official description:
The exhibition covers the breadth of Kubrick’s practice, beginning with his early photographs for Look magazine, taken in the 1940s, and continuing with his groundbreaking directorial achievements of the 1950s through the 1990s. His films are represented through a selection of annotated scripts, production photography, lenses and cameras, set models, costumes, and props. In addition, the exhibition explores Napoleon and The Aryan Papers, two projects that Kubrick never completed, as well as the technological advances developed and utilized by Kubrick and his team. By featuring this legendary film auteur and his oeuvre as the focus of his first retrospective in the context of an art museum, the exhibition reevaluates how we define the artist in the 21st century, and simultaneously expands upon LACMA’s commitment to exploring the intersection of art and film.
Definitely a must-see for any fan of cinema or anyone interested in a great artist’s life, for that matter!
