The week, I visited LACMA to view the Stanley Kubrick exhibit. The exhibit showcases Kubrick's drastic range of film genres and use of photography, costume, and musical score to make the film come to life. There is a display of his high tech lenses, as Kubrick came from a photography background. His films are influenced by his love of photography, from the lighting to the realism, and the use of the one-point-perspective.
Outside of the Kubrick exhibit, the museum features many interesting and interactive modern art installations, which also serve as great photo shoot opportunities.
Check out this behind the scenes video with some of the highlights:
-Penetrable by Jesus Rafael Soto- A neon yellow walk-thru sculpture of hanging plastic ropes that look like spaghetti (featured in the video)
-Stanley Kubrick- Viewing room for 2001 Space Odyssey (featured in the video)
-Chris Burden's Urban Light Sculpture (no admission required to view)- 202 vintage street lamps that offer a great photo op from every angle. (shown below)
-Levitated Mass- A giant elevated granite rock (not pictured)
-Tory Smith- "Smoke" The massive 24' high black hexagonal sculpture inside the lobby of LACMA (featured in the video)
Here is a close up of the Stanley Kubrick exhibit, which featured his annotated scripts, production photography, hand-drawn storyboards, and lenses.
