Over half-a-century since its release, Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey has astounded, confounded, and influenced generations of filmgoers, directors, and the world in general with its prescient depiction of the future. A new exhibition, Envisioning 2001: Stanley Kubrick’s Space Odyssey, has now touched down in New York City at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens following its debut at Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum in Frankfurt am Main in 2018, and it’s an essential visit for those interested in getting am in-depth behind-the-scenes look at the making of a masterpiece.
Featuring original artifacts from international collections and from the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the University of the Arts London, as well as from the Museum’s own collection, the exhibition includes original costumes, notably a Dawn of Man ape suit and a space suit from the Clavius Base scenes, as well as concept sketches from Douglas Trumbull, along with storyboards, contact sheets, test films, behind-the-scenes photographs, original posters, letters from Saul Bass and Richard Lester after seeing the film, the sole Oscar it won (for visual effects) and much, much more.
