David Bowie is Exhibition
(Philharmonie 1 – Espace d’exposition)
Conceived by London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, the exhibition David Bowie is has been a huge success. Since opening in London in Spring 2013, it has travelled the world from major capital to major capital and is now on show at the Paris Philharmonie.
David Bowie’s contributions to music and performance are milestones of our era. Whether performing glam rock, funk, soul, disco or dance music, he has made each genre his own. He has always been fascinated by the avant-garde and from Major Tom to Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane to Halloween Jack, he has reinvented and metamorphosed, putting his body on show as an actual performance, always one step ahead of the curve. In London, New York, via Berlin and Paris: shaking up the old world and resisting constraints, his musical geography has anticipated and traversed the artistic evolutions of our recent history. This is the rich and fascinating journey that the exhibition charts.
