Stanley Kubrick Exhibit at LACMA

April 12, 2013

“Art consists of reshaping life but it does not create life, nor cause life.” -Stanley Kubrick

Stanley Kubrick was known for exerting complete artistic control over his projects; in doing so, he reconceived the genres in which he worked. Visit LACMA’s Stanley Kubrick Exhibiton now through June 30, 2013. Tickets are available here.

Stanley Kubrick is known for his visually stimulating cinematography. His consistent design style is all about symmetry, contrast and subtlety which has influenced film, fashion and interior design. 

Two of our favorite classic/traditional interiors from “Clockwork Orange” demonstrating his love of contrast and symmetry.

Kubrick’s visual signatures include stark contrasts, like the bold blacks and whites and some pops of color. He demonstrates his eye for blod design thru the lens and with his costume selections.

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.
