Because it wouldn’t be a complete festival year without a bit of David Bowie!
ACMI’s Winter Masterpieces exhibition is always amazing, this years Dreamworks exhibition and Italian Masterpieces from the Spanish Court selling out in quick succession.
The 2015 exhibition is set to be another amazing event, with the entire Winter Masterpieces event exhibiting the one and only, David Bowie.
David Bowie Is, an exhibition that epitomises the genius that was the pop culture icon David Bowie, is coming to Melbourne in July next year for an expected sell-out season.
“This will be an unprecedented insight into the life, music and art of one of the world’s great performers,” Minister for Innovation, Tourism and Major Events MP Louise Asher told Timeout Magazine.
The exhibition, created in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, has since travelled around the world in sell-out seasons, the exhibition referencing his shifting identities and the icon that is David Bowie, as well as an insight into his influence on fans around the globe.
Filled with sound, film, music, art pieces, sketches and more, the exhibition aims to create an immersive experience for the viewer, placing items in distinct rooms to highlight the movement and flux of his thoughts and career.
Along with some never-before seen lyrics, letters and diary entries, the exhibition showcases over 50 of Bowie’s most iconic outfits, the crown jewel being his Ziggy Stardust Jumpsuit that he wore on BBC’S ‘One top of the Pops’ in 1972.
The Exhibition David Bowie Is will be on a five month loan to ACMI, and is the only showing of the exhibition in the Australasia area.
