The LACMA and the Academy Present the Works of Stanley Kubrick


The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, alongside the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, present the works of legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick.

In the world of cinematography and film, Stanley Kubrick is a legend. Regarded as one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, his body of work includes some of the most iconic and controversial films such as Lolita (1962), Dr. Strangelove (1964), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), A Clockwork Orange (1971), and The Shining (1980).

His films were noted for its unique cinematography, innovative special effects, and great attention to detail. In fact, it is this same perfectionistic approach to achieving realism that has lead some people to tie his name into some early space conspiracies (such as the landing on the Moon).

In recognition to Kubrick’s talent and great contribution in the field of film, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is presenting a retrospective of his work. It opened November of last year and will continue to be exhibited at Level 2 of the Art of Americas Building in LACMA until the 30th of June this year.

Originating from the Deutsches Filmmuseum in Frankfurt, Germany, the retrospective features the photography of Kubrick, along with costumes, cameras, set models, actual props, and annotated scripts of his past work, both public and never-before-seen.
