DAYDREAMING WITH STANLEY KUBRICK
It’sa celebration of all things Stanley Kubrick at Somerset House as they host a major new exhibition on the filmmaker this summer. Curated by James Putnam and UNKLE founder James Lavelle, and supported by the director’s wife Christiane Kubrick (who will be contributing an original piece), the show will feature works inspired by Stanley Kubrick from a host of artists, musicians and creatives. These include a composition juxtaposing characters from Dr Strangelove with leaders of nuclear states by Peter Kennard; a maze of mirrors from Gavin Turk, inspired by The Shining; and an endless widescreen tunnel, Doug Foster’s reference to 2001: A Space Odyssey. To coincide with the exhibition, the BFI will be re-releasing Kubrick’s Oscar-winning Barry Lyndon in cinemas across the country on 29th July. Film fans, you do not want to miss this one.
