Coming to the studio for halloween is an exhibition celebrating Stanley Kubrick’s infamous film ‘The Shining’ through the lens of Craig Oldham’s book THE SHINING: A VISUAL AND CULTURAL HAUNTING published by Rough Trade Books.
This loose-leafed and beautifully boxed book, disguised as the ‘writing project’ Jack is typing throughout the course of the film, explores the film’s cultural legacy through exclusive essays, original recollections, contributions from cultural luminaries, and art and visual ephemera.

Rare, exclusive interviews with lead actors Shelley Duvall (Wendy Torrance) and Dan Lloyd (Danny Torrance), along with a wealth of contributors including Cosey Fanni Tutti, Margaret Howell, James Lavelle (UNKLE), Gavin Turk and John Grindrod re-examine the film through the lenses of music, art, mythology, fashion, gender, and more. Stanley Kubrick was renowned for his rigorous research which inspired Craig's own approach.
