"Stanley Kubrick" is the first U.S. retrospective for the director of such classic films as "A Clockwork Orange," "Barry Lyndon" and "2001: A Space Odyssey"
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present "Stanley Kubrick," the first U.S. retrospective of the work of the director of such classic films as "A Clockwork Orange," "Barry Lyndon" and "2001: A Space Odyssey."
The exhibition, developed in collaboration with the Kubrick Estate and the Deutsches Filmmuseum in Frankfurt, is scheduled for Nov. 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013, at LACMA.
In addition to a film retrospective set for November at LACMA's Bing Theater, the exhibtion wil include Kubrick's early photographs for Look magazine, taken in the 1940s, annotated scripts, costumes, cameras, set models, props and promotion material.
The exhibtion was last seen in 2011 at La Cinematheque Francaise in Paris.
“By featuring this legendary filmmaker and his oeuvre in his first retrospective within the context of an art museum, 'Stanley Kubrick' will reevaluate how we define the artist in the twenty-first century, and simultaneously expand upon LACMA’s commitment to exploring the intersection of art and film,” LACMA chief Michael Govan said in a statement.
“Stanley Kubrick represents the perfect opportunity to collaborate with LACMA on the presentation of film in a museum setting,” Academy CEO Dawn Hudson said. “It is a taste of things to come when we open the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in the historic Wilshire May Company building on the LACMA campus.”
Funding for the exhibition came from LACMA trustee Steve Tisch, the film and television producer who joined the LACMA board in 2010. Tisch is also a noted art collector who owns works by such artists as David Hockney, John Baldessari, Ed Ruscha and Robert Mapplethorpe.
