Stanley Kubrick exhibition coming to L.A.

By Robert Kirchgassner ,

The first retrospective exhibition of legendary director Stanley Kubrick is set to arrive in Los Angeles on Nov. 7.

The exhibition is co-presented by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Motion Picture Academy.

It has already toured Berlin, Melbourne, Ghent, Zurich, Rome, Paris and Amsterdam.

Kubrick’s Estate and the Deutsches Filmmuseum collaborated on its development.

The exhibition gives people insight into Kubrick’s methods used in making such classic movies as 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), A Clockwork Orange (1971) and The Shining (1980).

LACMA board member Terry Semel was the former head of Warner Bros., which distributed many of Kubrick’s movies.

"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. We are also pleased to honor Kubrick’s impact on film and art history at our 2012 Art + Film Gala, along with artist Ed Ruscha, on October 27,” LACMA’s Michael Govan said.

The exhibition will run in L.A. until June 30.
