Stanley Kubrick was a master of twentieth-century film, the reclusive and mysterious genius behind ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ and ‘The Shining’. Now an exhibition of art inspired by his life and work is coming to Somerset House.

Entitled ‘Daydreaming with Stanley Kubrick', the show opens on July 6 and features works by artists, filmmakers and musicians, each responding to a film from the Kubrick archive. Contributors include singer Jarvis Cocker, artists Sarah Lucas, Marc Quinn and Gavin Turk, and the actress and director Samantha Morton.

The exhibition is curated by UNKLE’s James Lavelle and will feature a 1970s-style hexagonal carpet like the Overlook Hotel from ‘The Shining’, just to set the mood. The director’s artist wife Christiane Kubrick is contributing a new portrait ‘Remembering Stanley’.
