Take your protein pills and put your helmet on. After months of anticipation, the highly acclaimed David Bowie is exhibition has arrived at ACMI. Created by London’s Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), the exhibition is a Bowiephile’s dream — an unprecedented collection of over 50 stage costumes alongside handwritten set lists and lyric sheets, rare live and interview videos, musical scores and diary entries, photographs and album artwork.
The exhibition comes to Australia under a furious amount of buzz — its world premiere last March in London became V&A’s fastest selling exhibition ever, recording record numbers of over 311,000 visitors. And as the exclusive venue for David Bowie is, ACMI have crafted a specially-curated program of talks, screenings, live performances and special events to pair with the Major Tom-a-thon. Basically, if you’re a Bowie fan, this is next level squealworthy material.
