Kubrick - The Exhibition

21 June – 9 September 2012. At the Eye, Amsterdam, a comprehensive exhibition on one of the most influential directors of the 20th century: Stanley Kubrick (1928-1999), the genius behind films such as Lolita2001: A Space OdysseyA Clockwork Orange and The Shining.


The layout of the Kubrick exhibition itself was really nicely designed and featured a room dedicated to each of his films. (Click for large).



As well as his film work, there was an exhibition of prints from his early days as a top-class photographer, working for Look magazine.




Original poster art and magazine feature for Lolita, featuring some terrific photography by Bert Stern and below, a touch of The Korova Milk Bar for the 'Clockwork Orange' room.

A framed series of Philip Castle's beautiful airbrush art.

Faked newspapers from A Clockwork Orange.




A postcard of the original 'Overlook' Hotel and the neatly pressed clothes of those creepy little Grady twins.





From 'The Gold Room', a very convincing pre-digital image manipulation of an old photograph, featuring Jack Nicholson's head pasted-in and airbrushed to perfection.



Those masks from 'Eyes Wide Shut'.



That amazing space helmet design from 2001.

and not forgetting HAL... naturally.
