Submitted by the Event Organizer
Spoke Art presents Kubrick, an art show tribute to the films of Stanley Kubrick, which debuts on Saturday, September 6, 2014, from 6-10 pm. Resulting in a variegated display, Kubrick is an experiment in modernity, a cross-section between film and art.
Over 60 artists were invited to re-imagine their favorite characters, scenes and thematic concepts from one of the world’s most prolific directors. Spanning a plethora of mediums from sculpture and painting to limited edition prints, the show seeks to honor one of the 20th century’s most significant directors while also reinterpreting his impact in a contemporary context.
There is no cover charge, complimentary beverages will be served, and some artists will be in attendance. The exhibition will be on view until September 27, 2014.
About Stanley Kubrick
Widely known for his controversial techniques and highly controlled directorial style, Kubrick has fabricated a diverse repertoire of films and imagined worlds for his viewers. One of the great idiosyncratic masterminds in history’s cinema, Kubrick has cultivated a noteworthy genre completely his own. Critical discussions of humanity, morality and social justice all appear in his work regularly. Contextually disparate but psychologically banded, all of Kubrick’s films challenge the viewer both intellectually and ethically. A true auteur, Kubrick’s work pushes our understanding of human nature to a severe place. Extreme violence, salaciousness and deranged psychological behavior are commonplace motifs instrumented to establish Kubrick’s pessimistic undertones. Even through satire, Kubrick manages to take levity to a place of lunatic proportion.
Kubrick’s film include A Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, Lolita, Dr. Strangelove and many others.
