"David Bowie is" @ Victoria and Albert Museum, LondonMusic // Tuesday, 19 Feb 2013
With his new upcoming album release The Next Day on the way, we have David Bowie on the brain, and we can't help but reminisce about everything from The Labyrinth to "Space Oddity". Coincidentally, accompanying this fondness for Bowie is an exhibition presenting a whole array of the musician and cultural icon's career. Titled David Bowie is, the exhibition will be opening at the Victoria and Albert Museum on March 23rd. The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of events and talks as well. Here are some details from the museum:
"On display will be more than 300 objects including Ziggy Stardust bodysuits (1972) designed by Freddie Burretti, photography by Brian Duffy; album sleeve artwork by Guy Peellaert and Edward Bell; visual excerpts from films and live performances including The Man Who Fell to Earth, music videos such as Boys Keep Swinging and set designs created for the Diamond Dogs tour (1974). Alongside these will be more personal items such as never-before-seen storyboards, handwritten set lists and lyrics as well as some of Bowie’s own sketches, musical scores and diary entries, revealing the evolution of his creative ideas."
