Event Description

Each year at the Oscars, we honor the brightest stars of the entertainment industry; directors, screenwriters, visual artists, composers and actors, all of whom bring movies to life. We know and love these people because the work they’ve put on screen makes us laugh, makes us cry, makes us feel. Finch & Partners in association with Jaeger-LeCoultre are proud to bring to KP Projects’ this Award Season “The Art of Behind the Scenes” exhibit; a photo series paying tribute to the on set stills photogra- phers and the magic they capture on set; these unique moments between the takes that preclude the images that ignite the big screen—and our imaginations.

From February 11 – 26th, “The Art of Behind the Scenes” will showcase some of the most stunning behind-the-scenes photographs captured on set of this past century’s most icon- ic films. The exhibit takes us on an intimate, historic journey of the work and play that went into creating some of the most cinematic images of our time: Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr entwined in their legendary kiss from Here To Eternity, Audrey Hepburn relaxing on set before the next setup in Two For the Road, Brigitte Bardot passing time with a ciga- rette and a deck of cards during Viva Maria, Quentin Tarantino dancing behind camera with Uma Thurman and John Travolta on the set of Pulp Fiction—even David Bowie between the scenes as he’s made up for The Man Who Fell To Earth. Many of the images in this ex- hibit are exceptionally rare and have never been exhibited before. In this showcase, these pictures capturing the process of creating Hollywood classics are celebrated as art them- selves, and the artists who shot them celebrated.
