An exhibition devoted to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey will make its North American debut at the Museum of the Moving Image in Long Island City early next year.
Located at 36-01 35th Ave., the Museum of the Moving Image will host the exhibition from Jan. 18 through July 19, 2020 .
The exhibition includes original artefacts from the 1968 classic that were cultivated from international collections and from the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the University of the Arts London.
Throughout its six-month run, the exhibition will be accompanied by a wide variety of screening series, guest speakers and specially themed workshops.
Highlights of the exhibition will include concept sketches, costumes and storyboards from the movie, along with test films and photographs related to the Stargate special effects sequence.
The exhibition will also explore Kubrick’s influence on cinema, design, painting, architecture and advertising.
Advance tickets for the exhibition will go on sale in September, with a pre-sale window for museum members.
