January 2013

Stanley Kubrick is the first US retrospective for the iconic filmmaker presented by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (The Academy) running through June 30, 2013.

This impressive and diverse show contains a loose chronology of Kubrick’s work with over 600 curated pieces including: photography, lenses, cameras, equipment, film posters, costumes, set models, annotated scripts, props and other archival material.

The exhibition explores the technological innovations developed by Kubrick and his team from an altered NASA lens used to shoot by candlelight in Barry Lyndon to the front projection effect in 2001: A Space Odyssey. It also looks at unrealized projects such as the large-scale, biopic Napoleon and the Holocaust-themed The Aryan Papers.

2001: Space Odyssey (1965-68)

Back by popular demand, there will be encore screenings this February from Kubrick’s acclaimed repertoire of films.

There is also a free app containing many of the posters, photographs, scripts and handwritten notes from the exhibition. It includes an interactive timeline of the filmmaker’s career, audio excerpts of a rare 1965 Kubrick interview and original video interviews about his legacy.

The Academy’s satellite exhibition, Stanley Kubrick: The Ultimate Trip, will be on view through March 3, 2013 in its Grand Lobby Gallery.
