Major David Bowie exhibition planned

6th September 2012


London's Victoria & Albert Museum has confirmed that it will be hosting a special exhibition celebrating the career of David Bowie.

The event is being put on in partnership with designer Gucci and is the first major retrospective of the rock star. It is expected the show, which opens on March 23rd 2013, will be an in-depth look at Bowie's use of fashion, music, film and art over the past 50 years.

Curators Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh have been allowed access to the David Bowie Archive to selection a number of key pieces for the exhibition. Visitors staying at central London hotels will be able to see more than 300 exhibits that celebrate Bowie's unique style and music.

Over 60 of the most crucial stage costumes will be on display including outfits used by Bowie's alter ego Ziggy Stardust as well as the famous Union Jack coat designed by Bowie and Alexander McQueen for the Earthling album cover in 1997.

The exhibition will also include a number of photographs taken by Brian Duffy, Terry O’Neill and Masayoshi Sukita and a number of never-seen items such as handwritten set lists and lyrics by Bowie himself.

Martin Roth, director of the museum, said: "David Bowie is a true icon, more relevant to popular culture now than ever. His radical innovations across music, theatre, fashion and style still resound today in design and visual culture and he continues to inspire artists and designers throughout the world.

"We are thrilled to be presenting the first ever exhibition drawn from the David Bowie archive.

The show will be on at the Victoria & Albert Museum until July 28th 2013 and tickets can be pre-booked for £14 for adults and £9 for concessions.
