David Bowie Is
The exhibition of David Bowie, which has already been visited by more than a million people in different cities, finally arrived in the Catalan capital. Exhibits that were previously represented in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London can now be seen in travelers to the Barcelona Design Museum. The exposition of the museum reveals the unique creative style and versatile talent of the British artist, who died in January, 2016. The organisers emphasize the fact that David Bowie personally participated in the project.
You will get a chance to see more than 300 exhibits, including album covers, notebooks with lyrics, fragments of scenery, photos, videos and music videos, design items and musical instruments used by Bowie onstage. Unfortunately, the musician decided not to provide his legendary saxophone, which his father gave to him when David was 13 years old. The artist made a decision to keep the exhibit in his private collection. Also, special attention is paid to the stage costumes created by the famous designer Alexander McQueen, who made many amazing pieces for the performer.
