If you want a very good excuse to go to London, here you are:
Hosted by the Victoria and Albert museum, it’s a full immersion in Bowie’s lifes and attitudes showing not only what Bowie has given to this world but also what the world gave to him to become what he represents.
From the v&a website:
The V&A has been given unprecedented access to the David Bowie Archive to curate the first international retrospective of the extraordinary career of David Bowie. David Bowie is features more than 300 objects that include handwritten lyrics, original costumes, fashion, photography, film, music videos, set designs and Bowie’s own instruments.
It’s not just a tour around the objects, the memorabilia. It’s a deep experience through sounds, lights and colours which have contributed to build the visionary universe of one of the most eclectic and eccentric artists of the whole music scene.
