Stanley Kubrick at LACMA
Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)’s expansive Stanley Kubrick exhibition, on display until June 30, covers various aspects of Kubrick’s creative eye, including his photographs published in Look magazine in the 1940s, two uncompleted projects Napoleon and The Aryan Papers, and even technological advances that Kubrick and his team developed during film production.
The most notable eye candy includes paraphernalia from Kubrick’s most notable films including “The Shining,” “Eyes Wide Shut,” “Clockwork Orange,” “Full Metal Jacket” and more- everything from annotated scrips, behind-the-scenes production photos, set models, to costumes and props.
“Stanley Kubrick was known for exerting complete artistic control over his projects; in doing so, he reconceived the genres in which he worked,” states LACMA.org. “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.”
