For those of you that are in London during the next 10 days, this is your last chance to visit the exhibition of ‘Stanley Kubrick: New Perspectives’ at independent gallery WORK on Acton Street. The exhibition explores pivotal spaces from three of the director’s films: the Discovery One spaceship from 2001: A Space Odyssey, 1968; The Overlook Hotel from The Shining, 1980; and Hué City from Full Metal Jacket, 1987. Through original documents and photographs on loan from the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the University of the Arts London (UAL), the exhibition provides a glimpse of the extensive research, innovative techniques and meticulous designs that Kubrick used to make these spaces come alive on screen and seize the imaginations of generations of viewers. A must-see for film students with an interest in this legendary film maker.
The exhibition marks the publication of Stanley Kubrick: New Perspectives by Black Dog Publishing, a collection of essays by scholars working closely with archival resources to gain new insights into Kubrick’s 50 years of filmmaking.
The exhibition runs until 27th September 2014.
