The museum has confirmed details of its 2019 exhibition programme – set to include major Stanley Kubrick exhibition.
The new exhibition programme at the museum will begin with David Adjaye: Making Memory which will be on display from the 2nd February 2019. This display will concentrate on seven of Adjaye’s buildings to explore the role of monuments in his work, both as a design process and a way of creating memory.
For those who admire filmmaker Stanley Kubrick’s work, there will be an opportunity to explore his world in Stanley Kubrick: the Exhibition. On display from the 26th April, the exhibition will examine Kubrick’s life and work through original props and costumes, set models and rare photographs, while tracing the design story behind Kubrick’s body of work. It will be an opportunity for visitors to relive iconic scenes from The Shining (1980), Eyes Wide Shut (1999) and A Clockwork Orange (1971) and see objects on display for the first time in the UK, exploring the relationship Kubrick had with England as his film location and source of inspiration.
2018 marks the twelfth edition of Beazley Designs of the Year, which concentrates on the celebration of the most original and exciting products, concepts and designers in the world today. This annual exhibition sees design experts, practitioners and academics from across the world asked by the Design Museum to nominate potential projects, from which the museum selects over 70 designs for display, with a high-profile jury selecting a winner from each category and an overall winner. It will be on display from the 18th September.
Then from the 16th October, the Design Museum will present Moving to Mars which will concentrate on the three phases of life on Mars – Arrive, Survive and Thrive. Combining factual science and design fiction, the exhibition will feature an immersive experience that gives visitors a sense of the surface of Mars.
