A new exhibition uncovering the perpetual legacy and cultural impact of David Bowie is coming to the Brooklyn Museum. Here-s a sneak peek of what you can expect to see in this fantastic insight into a genuine pop culture icon.
Few pop culture icons can claim the impact and enduring legacy of David Bowie. He was a leading figure in popular music for over five decades, acclaimed by critics and other musicians for his innovative work. Constantly reinventing his image to flow in perfect synchronization with the times, David Bowie’s place in history is secured. Now we can take a deep dive into this artists legacy at the “David Bowie Is” exhibition.
“David Bowie is” left the Victoria and Albert Museum, London in August 2013 to begin a world tour. Since then the exhibit has had almost 1.8 million visitors, a true testament to Bowie’s cultural impact. The installation enjoyed a truly phenomenally successful run in Chicago, described as the most popular show ever at the Museum Of Contemporary Art Chicago.
Finally, the exhibition is coming to the Brooklyn Museum from March 2 to July 15, 2018.
The show features over 300 objects collected from David Bowie’s teens to his eventual his death in 2016. The curios include handwritten lyrics, costumes, set designs, photography, set designs, album artwork, and rare performance material. As a visitor to the exhibition, you’ll be able to trace the workflow of the artists seminal, songs from handwritten scribblings of lyrics to footage of recording sessions, and concert video.
Tickets are on sale now. Prices range from $35 for GA access to private tours for up to $2,500. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s coming to NYC in March:

| . This issue of L’uomo Vogue features an incredible photo shoot by Steven Klein that’s sort of Blade Runner meets The Heart’s Filthy Lesson. Some of the images in this session are disturbing and violent, but they are amazing and really worth a look. If you’re not familiar with the photo shoot then do yourself a favour and check it out.
