Following a recent visit at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB), among visits in other cities around the world, Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition will now be hosted by London’s Design Museum, from April 26th to September 15th. The touring show presents a retrospective of the creative career of New York director, Stanley Kubrick (1928-1999).

Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition showcases a chronological tour of the work of this cinematic genius, creator of masterpieces in a wide variety of film genres. It will present a unique insight into the vast Kubrick archive, through original props, costumes, unusual models and photographs, whilst also exploring the design history behind Kubrick’s body of work. His fascination with all aspects of design and architecture influenced each stage of his films, infamous for their special effects and innovative pictorial composition. He worked with many key designers of his generation, from Hardy Amies to Saul Bass, Eliot Noyes, Milena Canonero and Ken Adam.

You can relive iconic scenes from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), A Clockwork Orange (1971), The Shining (1980) and Eyes Wide Shut (1999), among others, and see unpublished materials that have never been displayed in the UK, illustrating the unique relationship that Kubrick had with England, and particularly with London, as a location and source of inspiration for his films.
