David Bowie Is, Comes to the Brooklyn Museum

May 07, 2018

This summer cross the bridge for an exhibition that is beyond worth it. David Bowie Is at the Brooklyn Museum delves into the artist’s personal archives and presents over 400 objects, 60 custom costumes, 85 handwritten lyrics, and 100 items that are all exclusive to the Brooklyn viewing. Allow your inner music-fan to run wild while soaking in the music videos, audio recordings, TV clips, and films. Few artists have revolutionized how we experience music like Bowie. The exhibition outlines the creative process that led to the birth of Ziggy Stardust, Let’s Dance, and The Man Who Sold The World. New York City is the last stop on tour, and it only fits it would end where the British-born musician lived and spent his final days. Hold back your tears when remembering the genius glam rock icon who breathed and lived rock'n'roll, and left us legendary albums to keep his memory alive and well.

David Bowie Is, on view until July 15, 2018, Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11238
