Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition

Location: Design Museum

26 April – 15 September 2019

I had the opportunity to travel to London last weekend and I saw one of the most iconic filmmakers – Stanley Kubrick.

He spent most of his time living and working in Britain. It was here that he created the battlefields of Vietnam for Full Metal Jacket (1987), an orbiting space station for 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), and Dr Strangelove’s war room (1964).

The Exhibition offers a unique insight into the director’s vast archive through original props and costumes, set models and rare photographs, while tracing the design story behind Kubrick’s body of work. His fascination with all aspects of design and architecture influenced every stage of all his films. He was most inventive in his introduction of revolutionary devices to his film-making, such as the camera lens designed for NASA to shoot by candlelight

What I’ve loved most were scenes from The Shining (1980), Eyes Wide Shut (1999) and A Clockwork Orange (1971) .
