Bowie To Get Major Museum Exhibition

David Bowie as a musical innovator and cultural icon will form the basis for an upcoming exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in the British capital early next year. The musician’s career will form the basis for the exhibition after the V&A was granted “unprecedented” access to the David Bowie Archive. Entitled “David Bowie Is,” the exhibition promises handwritten lyrics, original costumes, fashion, photography and Bowie’s own instruments among the exhibits. Running March 23 through July 28 at the world’s “greatest museum of art and design,” the exhibition promises to explore Bowie’s collaborations with other artists and will include more than 60 stage costumes including original Ziggy Stardust bodysuits from 1972 and outfits designed for his Aladdin Sane and Thin White Duke characters.
