Stanley Kubrick Retrospective: LACMA Presents Exhibition and Film Series

Stanley Kubrick   November 1, 2012–June 30, 2013 

Stanley Kubrick was known for exerting complete artistic control over his projects; in doing so, he reconceived the genres in which he worked. The exhibition covers the breadth of Kubrick’s practice, beginning with his early photographs for Look magazine, taken in the 1940s, and continuing with his groundbreaking directorial achievements of the 1950s through the 1990s.

His films are represented through a selection of annotated scripts, production photography, lenses and cameras, set models, costumes, and props. In addition, the exhibition explores Napoleon and The Aryan Papers, two projects that Kubrick never completed, as well as the technological advances developed and utilized by Kubrick and his team. By featuring this legendary film auteur and his oeuvre as the focus of his first retrospective in the context of an art museum, the exhibition reevaluates how we define the artist in the 21st century

Film Series:  2012: A Kubrick Odyssey

The first of LACMA’s screening series presented in conjunction with the landmark exhibition Stanley Kubrick is a complete, chronological survey of the director’s oeuvre. From his largely unseen feature debut, Fear and Desire, to his posthumously released final film, Eyes Wide Shut, this retrospective will offer viewers the opportunity to consider how Kubrick’s style progressed over forty-five years of filmmaking.

Stanley Kubrick opens on November 1 and will be on view through June 30.

Art+Film Gala October 27, 2012
Honoring artist Ed Ruscha and filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. 

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) hosted its second annual Art+Film Gala on Saturday, October 27, honoring artist Ed Ruscha and filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. Co-chaired by actor Leonardo DiCaprio and LACMA Trustee Eva Chow and presented by Gucci, the evening brought together 550 international guests from the worlds of art and design, entertainment, fashion, and music, among others. The evening raised over $3.5 million, with proceeds going to support LACMA’s initiative to make film more central to the museum’s curatorial programming, while also funding LACMA’s broader mission.
Artists in attendance included Doug Aitken, John Baldessari, Mark Grotjahn, Barbara Kruger, Catherine Opie, Retna, Marnie Weber and Jim Shaw, Taryn Simon, Diana Thater, and Bill Viola, among others.
