“Daydreaming with Stanley Kubrick” is a new exhibition that features art inspired by the filmmaker and his work. Somerset House in London will host the event from July 6 through August 24 and will include pieces from artists like Daft Punk member Thomas Bangalter, Carl Craig, Doug Aitken, Gavin Turk, Haroon Mirza, Anish Kapoor and many more.
Each one was invited to “respond to a film, scene, character or theme from the Kubrick archives, shining new perspectives onto the cinematic master’s lifework.”
Kubrick’s wife of 41 years, Christiane Kubrick will also support the exhibition and contribute a portrait entitled, “Remembering Stanley.” Jan Harlan, Kubrick’s executive producer for 28 years is also a supporter of the project, with Warner Bros. endorsing it.
The iconic helmer made his first big film “The Killing” in 1956 at the age of 25. In the decades that followed he directed some of Hollywood’s most classic films such as “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “A Clockwork Orange,” “Eyes Wide Shut” and “The Shining.” After inspiring new and upcoming directors, and leaving a grand legacy behind, he passed away in 1999.
