Stanley Kubrick retrospective on tap: AMPAS, LACMA to co-present major look at filmmaker’s work – Chicago Tribune

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will co-present an exhibition of the work of Stanley Kubrick beginning in November, billing it as the first U.S. retrospective of the famed director.

AMPAS chief exec Dawn Hudson called the event “a taste of things to come” with regards to the growing partnership between the film academy and LACMA, which forged an agreement to create the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in the LACMA West building at Wilshire and Fairfax.

“This is a major step in the Academy’s plan to create a premier movie museum in Los Angeles,” Acad prexy Hawk Koch said, adding that the retrospective “will provide visitors the opportunity to experience Kubrick’s iconic work as well as his influence on our culture.”
