Beginning in the 1970s and throughout his four-decade career, Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg has explored the increasingly insidious ways in which technologies have infiltrated our lives—through our culture, our bodies, our minds and our souls, transforming what it means to be human.
For David Cronenberg: Transformation, six artists with clear affinities for Cronenberg’s films have been invited to respond to a specific theme in his work: the yearning in human beings to witness the next stage of human evolution. The artists range in primary practice, but their work reflects the enormous impact of Cronenberg on visual- arts language, and is a testament to the director’s own ongoing engagement with visual art.
There are various strategies that the artists invoke through Cronenberg’s cinema to interrogate contemporary culture. Some works within the exhibition reference specific films, scenes and scripts; others explore Cronenberg’s ideas less directly, projecting a distinctive Cronenbergian spirit or sensibility. All six artists enthusiastically proclaim to be inspired and influenced by David Cronenberg. As the concept of transformation has been at the core of Cronenberg’s films, so it is that his work has, in turn, had a transformative effect on these artists and many more of their generation.

The partnership with Cronenberg seems to be going really well. I had such a good experience in Cosmopolis! David is an incredible person, and the most fun, intriguing man to work with I've ever met. He has been making movies for the last 40 years, and every film he makes shows just how unusual he is. We started shooting his new movie recently. It's called Maps To The Stars, with Julianne Moore and John Cusack. The scripts of these two films are amongst the most original ones I've ever read, that's why I hope to continue working with him forever.
Hot on the heels of the Stanley Kubrick exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Toronto International Film Festival has announced a multi-platform film exhibition honoring the work of David Cronenberg.

Digital Cinema in Transition's insight:
Apart from the BMW films, this commerical extends into new realms of advertising; the use of officlal teasers, the actual release of the ad, a director's cut and a behind the scenes reel all keep the narrative going.
Shivers (David Cronenberg, 1975): “Our big one this year, the one we’re most excited about. David worked with us on this. He was involved with the colour timing and even asked us to reconstruct the opening credits sequence. The only credits that existed were from the American release version, where the film was called They Came From Within. We went to great lengths to reconstruct those opening credits so they say Shivers.”Toronto Star TIFF 2013 Cinematheque brings back classics, newly restored Toronto Star
In David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis, society is on the precipice of tearing itself apart as the dual (and interlocking) orders of cyber capital(ism) and technology have finally depleted the world of original actions and thoughts, robbing everything of meaning and feeling. The result is a soul-sick dissociation and disaffection.
