Stanley Kubrick:
The Exhibition

“The screen is a magic medium. It has such power that it can retain interest as it conveys emotions and moods that no other art form can hope to tackle.”

— Stanley Kubrick

The Design Museum, London celebrated the work of one of the greatest filmmakers of the twentieth century, marking the 20th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick’s death. The exhibition explored his unique command of the whole creative design process of filmmaking, from storyteller to director to editor.

Recollecting iconic scenes and discovering unseen material from his genre-defining films, visitors enter the exhibition whilst walking on a replica carpet from the archetypal scene in The Shining, before entering a ‘one-point perspective’ corridor mirroring Kubrick’s famous camera technique.

Stanley Kubrick’s philosophy and his ability to create complete worlds with each of his films is explored through a vast archive of research and production documents, props, set designs and storyboards. Such a unique and all encompassing experience can only be achieved by a team who truly engage and understand with such outstanding material.

Echo produced bespoke captions and signage throughout the exhibition in an array of media and finishes.
