The David Bowie Exhibition at V&A Museum takes place from Saturday 23rd March – Sunday 28th July 2013. It promises to be a must-see event for fans of the outrageous singer and actor as the exhibition explores the career of this legend and showcases everything from photographs to his own musical instruments.
Bowie started out as a singer in 1969 with his hit song, Space Oddity, and a few years later, hit the glam rock scene with a new alter-ego, the infamous Ziggy Stardust. His career then streamed into an eclectic mix of reinvented rock tracks and film appearances, most notably as the Goblin King in the Labyrinth. The exhibition will showcase items from his film career as well as handwritten lyrics for some of his songs.
This exhibition is a real treat for fans of the spectacular star, and will not only display items from his illustrious career, but will also follow his more humble beginnings in Brixton as the unknown David Jones. Over 300 objects are displayed in this exhibition, some of which have never been seen before or are more personal items, such as Bowie’s own sketches and storyboards.
Among the priceless Bowie artefacts on display, visitors should keep an eye out for the Ziggy Stardust bodysuits, as designed by Freddie Buretti, and his many costumes from his film roles and music videos. Make sure not to miss out on this spectacular event!
