Little of the information presented in Envisioning 2001 will be new to Kubrick diehards, but it gathers artifacts that offer a thrill for anyone who has ever been affected by the movie.
An exhibit highlights the published and unpublished photos Kubrick snapped between 1945 and 1960, before he became the renowned filmmaker.
To create 2001: A GIF Odyssey, digital producer and copywriter Jean-Baptiste Henri Franck Cyrille Marie Le Divelec, who goes by JB, cut the two hour and 41-minute long saga into 569 animated GIFs.
LOS ANGELES — Often, I find museum exhibitions that have to do with celebrity or Hollywood culture to be a shameless attempt to generate a blockbuster-sized crowd who, flocking to the museum in droves, boost attendance numbers for the year. That being said, the massive installation Stanley Kubrick at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art transcends the sticky landscape of vapid popular culture and embraces a filmmaker that many would term artist. The exhibition, which was originally curated by the Deutsches Filmmuseum in Frankfurt was brought to LACMA in collaboration with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
