STANLEY KUBRICK: The Exhibition 

The Design Museum, 224-238 Kensington High St, London W8 6AG 

26th April - 15th September

There’s hardly a name in cinematic history more famous, than director, screen writer and producer Stanley Kubrick.  Even Spielberg was inspired by his innovative genius, claiming “he can craft a movie better than anyone”.

Film buff or not, you are sure to have seen many of his controversial films.  He has shaken up the screen with revolutionary topics, dystopian Clockwork Orange, erotic Eyes Wide Shut and futuristic 2001: Space Odyssey to name a few.

It was his shock horror The Shining that catapulted the legendary Jack Nicholson into the dark manic character type that prepped him for later villainous roles like the Joker.  Technically and creatively experimental, Kubrick was one of the first directors to use Steadicam giving The Shining its supernatural feel that sparked a trend for years to come.

“If it can be written or thought, it can be filmed” he claimed.

Marking the 20th anniversary of his death, The Design Museum celebrates the great man with a tribute to his work , exploring his creative process, mixing material from many of his iconic films, with memorabilia and interviews. Merging imaginative set design with progressive visual effects and powerful music, Kubrick’s films covered all genres and pushed boundaries creatively. Forget Hollywood, what could be more apt, than a Kubrick exhibition held in London as the UK was his home for 40 years and the source of many of his film locations. It’s revealing to learn where many famous scenes were filmed…did you know that Brunel University campus was in Clockwork Orange or Beckton Gas Works in Full Metal Jacket?

Hear, see and appreciate all this and so much more, book now for a front seat!
