BOWIE BOUND FOR BROOKLYN
10/5/17

The Brooklyn Museum will be the final stop on the world tour of the David Bowie is exhibition organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. It will be on view from 3/2 to 7/15.

The exhibition is the first retrospective of the extraordinary five-decade career of David Bowie. David Bowie is explores his creative process which, the organizers proudly state “revolutionized the way we see music, inspired people to shape their own identities while also challenging social traditions.”

The exhibition features more than 300 objects— handwritten lyrics, album art, set designs, etc.—collected from his teenage years through his death in 2016. There are more than 60 stage costumes, photography by Brian Duffy, Terry O'Neill and Masayoshi Sukita, album sleeve artwork, visual excerpts from films and live performances and music videos.

Matthew Yokobosky, Director of Exhibition Design, Brooklyn Museum, said "With mainstream appeal and yet an avant-garde heart, David Bowie was one of the most original artists of our times. He challenged the status quo and continually took us on new musical explorations with his forward-thinking and groundbreaking presentations. David Bowie continues to be the apex for many artists in wide-ranging disciplines."

David Bowie is will be a timed ticketed exhibition. Lightning Bolt tickets, which give attendees priority access to the exhibition, are available now through the run of the exhibition and cost $35. Exclusive packages start at $85.
