David Bowie Is will open at the Brooklyn Museum on March 2nd. For this exhibition, the museum was given unprecedented access to Bowie’s personal archive to put together a display of approximately 400 objects that include the artist’s original costumes, handwritten lyric sheets from famous songs, original album art, photographs, and videos. Viewers are able to get a glimpse of Bowie’s creative process from his teenage years in England through his last years living in New York City.
David Bowie Is has been touring the world for the past five years. Its last stop will be the Brooklyn Museum from March 2 to July 15, 2018 on the fifth floor. The museum is located at 200 Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. Check the museum website for related programming beginning with a Member Preview on March 1.
