An exhibition to mark the 20th anniversary of the death of film legend Stanley Kubrick will explore his unique command of the whole creative design process of film-making, from storyteller to director to editor.
The Design Museum in Kensington will launch the exhibition on April 26 and will invite the audience to relive iconic scenes from Kubrick’s famous works.
There will also be an opportunity to discover unseen material from his genre-defining films, including The Shining, Barry Lyndon, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Full Metal Jacket and A Clockwork Orange.
The exhibition will feature more than 500 objects, projections and interviews from his life and works – from predicting the modern tablet and defining the aesthetic of space exploration a year before the Moon Landing, in 2001: A Space Odyssey, to the use of NASA-manufactured lenses to film by candlelight in Barry Lyndon.
The exhibition has received high praise from another legendary film-maker, Steven Spielberg, who said: “Nobody could craft a movie better than Stanley Kubrick. He is an inspiration to us all.
“Stanley was a chameleon with the astonishing ability to reinvent himself with each new story he told. I defy anyone who just happens upon a Kubrick film while channel surging to try with all your might to change the station – I have found this to be impossible.
“So, to all film-lovers and film-makers, if you want to understand and experience how Stanley Kubrick created these unforgettable worlds don’t miss this wonderful exhibition at the Design Museum in London.”
