'Stanley Kubrick' at LACMA
"Stanley Kubrick," opening Nov. 1 at LACMA, features more than 1,000 objects pulled from the legendary filmmaker's personal archives. The exhibition represents a formidable and somewhat daunting plunge into the mind of one of cinema's greatest directorial talents.
LACMA's exhibition emphasizes the connections between some of Kubrick's films and specific works of art. Kubrick was a well-rounded filmmaker who drew inspiration from the broad cultural spectrum. Sometimes the visual references in his movies were deliberate, while at other times it is less clear who was influencing who. The exhibition provides a fascinating survey of the dialogue between Kubrick's filmography and the world of visual art.
