No dates for the Toronto engagement of the Kubrick exhibition have been announced, but it is expected to open some time in late 2014. Organizers made the announcement via Twitter on Wednesday.
"Stanley Kubrick" was first shown in 2004 at the Deutches Filmmuseum in Frankfurt, Germany. It has since been seen in several European cities, including Paris, Rome and Amsterdam, as well as in Melbourne, Australia.
The exhibition was created with the cooperation of Kubrick's estate and features items from the Kubrick archives that are housed at the University of the Arts London.
The exhibition made its North American debut at LACMA in November 2012. The show was cosponsored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and featured more than 1,000 objects relating to Kubrick's movies and career as a photographer before his rise to prominence.
Kubrick, who died in 1999 before the release of his final movie, "Eyes Wide Shut," directed a total of 13 feature films.
The exhibition also devotes significant space to projects he failed to realize during his lifetime, including an aborted biopic of Napoleon Bonaparte and a movie project called "The Aryan Papers."
