Stanley Kubrick Exhibition Opens in Moscow
Stanley Kubrick

Have you ever heard that Stanley Kubrick was a photographer? It's the first time when his works are shown to the Moscow public. Fashionable and historical at the same time this exhibition make you to see the new Kubrick and to rethink his cult movies. 

      The American film director is considered to be one of the greatest personalities in the cinema history. He worked in various genres like epic, horror, historical film, science fiction, utopia and drama. There are hundreds of books written on Kubrick's genius, but less attention is paid to another side of his talent.

      Few people know that Kubrick was a professional photographer. At the age of 17 he started his career in the “Look” magazine, where he made reports on the postwar life in New York. He took pictures of different performances, circus shows, concerts, celebrities, actors and musicians.

      About 12 000 original negatives have been found by the art historian Rainer Crone in the Ohio Library of Congress and in New York archives. Careful examination of these photos can help to review and possibly to change the perception of Kubrick's contribution to the art of XX century.

      The exhibition will last until January, 29.

      The screenings of famous movies will be organized in the museum's cinema.

      The address: 16, Ostozhenka street, Multimedia Art Museum.
