Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition | A Film Odyssey in Kensington
Stanley Kubrick was a notorious perectionist.
And he’d be very pleased with the show that’s been gestating at The Design Museum for the past few months.
It features a staggering 700+ objects drawn from across the film director’s career. There’s costumes from The Shining and A Clockwork Orange, detailed set models of the ‘centrifuge’ used to film some of the scenes in 2001: A Space Odyssey, a set of index cards describing every day of Napoleon’s life (for a film that was never made) and plenty of interesting notes, interview clips and letters from the man himself.
There’ll also be a chance to explore the director’s relationship with England, the country that he chose to make his home, and which formed his primary filming location and source of inspiration.
Just don’t go in there with your eyes wide shut…
NOTE: Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition is showing until 15th September. Tickets cost £16, and booking ahead recommended as they are selling fast. You can find out more at the website right HERE.
