Spoke Art is proud to present: Kubrick – An art show tribute to the films of Stanley Kubrick. Over 60 artists were invited to re-imagine their favorite characters, scenes and thematic concepts from one of the world’s most prolific directors. Spanning a plethora of mediums from sculpture and painting to limited edition prints, the show seeks to honor one of the 20th century’s most significant directors while also reinterpreting his impact in a contemporary context.
Widely known for his controversial techniques and highly controlled directorial style, Kubrick has fabricated a diverse repertoire of films and imagined worlds for his viewers. One of the great idiosyncratic masterminds in history’s cinema, Kubrick has cultivated a noteworthy genre completely his own. Critical discussions of humanity, morality and social justice all appear in his work regularly.
Contextually disparate but psychologically banded, all of Kubrick’s films challenge the viewer both intellectually and ethically. A true auteur, Kubrick’s work pushes our understanding of human nature to severe place. Extreme violence, salaciousness and deranged psychological behavior are commonplace motifs instrumented to establish Kubrick’s pessimistic undertones. Even through satire, Kubrick manages to take levity to a place of lunatic proportion.
All the artists were allowed to select the film of their choosing, there were no guidelines on subject matter or content. Each artist was given free reign to re-interpret and render their take on Kubrick’s entire cinematic collection. Resulting in a variegated display, KUBRICK is an experiment in modernity, a cross-section between film and art.
Participating Artists include Aaron Jasinski, Adam Maida, Akira Beard, Alex Kirzhener, Anarkitty, Audrey Pongracz, Bartosz Kosowski, Brian Ewing, Brian Methe, Bruce White, Chris Skinner, Christine Aria Hostetler, Crowded Teeth, Cuddly Rigor Mortis , Cuyler Smith, Dave MacDowell, David Moscati, Doug LaRocca, Eiko Ojala, Fernando Reza, Gene Guynn, Geoff Trapp, Glen Brogan, Guillaume Morellec, Irma Rivera, Ivonna Buenrostro, Jayde Fish, Jen Mann, Jesse Riggle, Jessica Deahl, Johannah O’Donnell, John Wentz, Jon Wayshack, Joshua Budich, Justin, VanGenderen, Kate Zambrano, Kate Copeland, Kiersten Essenpreis, Mandy Tsung, Matt Dye, Meghan Stratman , Michael Ramstead, Epyon 5, Nan Lawson , New Flesh, Nicole Gustafsson, Oliver Barrett, Rhys Cooper, Robert Wilson, Sam Gilbey, Sam Ho, Sam Smith, Sandi Calistro, Sarah Joncas, Steve Yamane, Thomas Walker, Tim Maclean, Tim Jordan, Tim Doyle, Tracie Ching, Van Orton Design, Veronica Fish and Vincent Aseo.
Kubrick – An art show tribute to the films of Stanley Kubrick will open on September 6, 2014 and run until September 27th 2014. Spoke Art is located at 816 Sutter St. San Francisco, CA 94109.
A show almost 2 years in the making, this Friday night at Gallery 1988 (West), artists will debut pieces inspired by the movies and TV shows of writer/director Joss Whedon.

Watch the brand new clip from Big Hero 6 that debuted during tonight’s ABC special, “The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic.”
“Big Hero 6″ is a heartfelt comedy adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, clean freak Wasabi No-Ginger, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a cutting-edge robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action and all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6″ is directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”).
Disney’s Big Hero 6 opens in theatres in 3D November 7, 2014.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes the new animated short “Frozen Fever,” welcoming back to the big screen Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and, of course, the one-and-only Olaf.

The announcement was first made within the ABC Television Network special “The Story of Frozen: Making an Animated Classic,” which aired September 2. The special also featured the world television debut of a scene from the new action comedy adventure from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6,” as well as a sneak peek at the upcoming season of the ABC series “Once Upon A Time.”
In “Frozen Fever,” it’s Anna’s birthday and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but Elsa’s icy powers may put more than just the party at risk.
The short debuts Spring 2015.
