Kubrick’s First Major Retrospective

By Jauretsi

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has long been committed to exploring the intersection of art and film, and it recently hit a bull’s eye with their launch of the first major Stanley Kubrick retrospective in the United States. The exhibit is a rabbit hole of scripts, lenses, costumes, props, and production photos. For all the geeked-out Kubrick junkies, the exhibit features two projects that Kubrick never completed: Napoleon and The Aryan Papers. Kubrick-philes can also learn of the technological advances developed and utilized by Kubrick and his team.

This body of work is worth the plane ride to Los Angeles. Held inside the Art of the Americas building, the exhibit runs through June 30, 2013, so book those flights to study first-hand one of cinema’s greatest directors. To purchase tickets, visit LACMA here. If you can’t make it, read more about the exhibition online.

While we’re on the topic of Kubrick, it’s good to note that a boxed set of Kubrick films is always a primo holiday present, so we found a few on eBay to help you offer the gift of film. Another exquisite gift we spotted on eBay is the large, out-of-print edition of the Stanley Kubrick Archives coffee table book. Opening either of these gifts is sure to put a smile on the face of the receiver.
