KUBRICK celebrating the works and the career and the utter genius

Stanley Kubrick was known for exerting 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 practice, beginning with his early photographs for Look magazine, taken in the 1940s, and continuing with his groundbreaking directorial achievements of the 1950s through the 1990s. His films are represented through a selection of annotated scripts, production photography, lenses and cameras, set models, costumes, and props. In addition, the exhibition explores Napoleon and The Aryan Papers, two projects that Kubrick never completed, as well as the technological advances developed and utilized by Kubrick and his team. By featuring this legendary film auteur and his oeuvre as the focus of his first retrospective in the context of an art museum, the exhibition reevaluates how we define the artist in the 21st century, and simultaneously expands upon LACMA’s commitment to exploring the intersection of art and film.

ART OF THE AMERICA BUILDING, LEVEL 2

November 1, 2012–June 30, 2013 “Come view photographs, scripts, lenses, cameras, set models, costumes, props and, of course, film at this extensive, 13,000-squarefoot retrospective of the auteur's work. There are large-scale photos and set pieces that will captivate you, but some of our favorite smaller pieces include: the voluminous scrapbook made by Gertrude Kubrick

(aka “mom”) of young Stanley’s early photojournalism work; the type-written letters Kubrick received from various religious institutions condemning Lolita; the giant, shiny knife that Jack Nicholson used in that famous door-slashing scene in The Shining (Kubrick took the knife from his wife Christiane’s kitchen drawer).”

Los Angeles residents may recall the long, arduous 105 mile journey of a 456-lb. rock from Riverside to its new home at LACMA. Michael Heizer’s LEVITATED MASS slowly rolled into the city through the course of roughly 11 days, and the efforts were documented on Twitter by crew members and onlookers alike.

LEVITATING

MASS

The piece came under fire and much controversy admist the excitement, and people were left wondering “What constitutes art?” The furor was primarily sparked

by the $10 million price tag. “Taken whole, Levitated Mass speaks to the expanse of art history, from ancient traditions of creating artworks from megalithic stone, to modern forms of abstract geometries and cutting-edge feats of engineering.” -lacma.org { Visitors can visit the work from 7 am until sundown every day, and may enter through the gates on 6th Street or through the museum. Entry is not available when it is raining. }
