After being on display at the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum in London, England, the exhibition “David Bowie is” will set up shop in the Great White North at Toronto’s Art Gallery of Ontario from Sept. 25 to Nov. 27.
Announced on June 11 by the AGO, gallery director and CEO Matthew Teitelbaum called the event “an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate a living artist whose radical artfulness of identity has had an enormous influence on art, design and contemporary culture as we know it.”
He added, “We are thrilled to work with the world-class V&A in bringing the provocative genius and vision of David Bowie to Toronto.”
Over 300 pieces of Bowie memorabilia will make their way to Toronto this September, including items like costumes, set designs, photographs, music videos, instruments, album art and more. (We are looking forward to seeing the Ziggy Stardust bodysuits the most!)Read More »from David Bowie exhibit coming to Toronto’s Art Gallery of Ontario this fall
