David Cronenberg — The exhibition
EYE Filmmuseum Amsterdam
David Cronenberg — The exhibition | EYE Filmmuseum Amsterdam | Exhibition | 2014
In the series of exhibitions devoted to great narrative directors such as Kubrick and Fellini, EYE presented a major exhibition focusing on director David Cronenberg, who acquired cult status with his idiosyncratic films about the relationship between body, mind, technology and mass media. His work is still very relevant in the current age of large-scale technological developments, often with unprecedented effects on the human psyche. The exhibition explored Cronenberg’s world through the main themes of his films: the physical and psychological transformation of his protagonists.
Highlights of this exhibition included the weird and wonderful special effects items from Cronenberg’s films, together with bizarre props, set photos and original costumes.
