Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition

Jun 30, 2016–Oct 30, 2016

Stanley Kubrick exerted 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 achievements, beginning with his photographs for LOOK magazine taken in the 1940s, and continuing with his directorial achievements of the 1950s through the 1990s. His films are represented through annotated scripts, production photography, lenses and cameras, set models, costumes, and props. In addition, the exhibition explores Napoleon and Aryan Papers, two projects that Kubrick never completed, and the technological advances developed by Kubrick and his team.

This exhibition is organized by the Deutsches Filmmuseum, Frankfurt am Main, Christiane Kubrick and The Stanley Kubrick Archive at University of the Arts London.

Spotlighting the early and mid-career of Kubrick, we see the artist evolve from a highly skilled, street-level photographer to the brilliant, meticulous creator of some of the most ambitious and powerful films in cinema history. CJM Members receive a special discount to YBCA screenings
