Stanley Kubrick Retrospective At LACMA
Do I need to move to L.A.? Well, apparently so. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) will host ‘Stanley Kubrick’ from November 1st through June 30, 2013. It’s the first time a retrospective of the brilliant director’s work will be shown in an art gallery setting. Deservedly so. Stanley essentially made the same film over and over again and brilliantly, I might add. It’s said that he considers the films from ‘Lolita’ to ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ his true oeuvre, but the show will comprise elements from all of his films including ‘Spartacus’ and ‘Paths of Glory’, etc.
More after the jump.
The show will also feature ‘photography, costumes, cameras, set models (!), original props, and annotated scripts’. There were a few films he was working on before he died, such as ‘Napoleon’ and ‘The Aryan Papers’—those films will also be explored. The show, which started at the Deutsches Filmmuseum in Frankfurt is in partnership with The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. it is said to be a step toward the Academy’s creation of a huge, new comprehensive film museum in Los Angeles.
“Once completed, the museum will be a state-of-the-art masterpiece and will contain 230,000 square feet of theatres, galleries, interactive movie-making stages, education centers and special event spaces,” the Academy posted to its website.
