Exhibition – David Bowie is
23 March – 11 August 2013. The V&A has been given unprecedented access to the David Bowie Archive to curate the first international retrospective of the extraordinary career of David Bowie. David Bowie is features more than 300 objects that include handwritten lyrics, original costumes, fashion, photography, film, music videos, set designs and Bowie's own instruments.
Gucci is proud to sponsor this exhibition. David Bowie's creativity and idiosyncratic authenticity have helped shape everything from contemporary art, music and fashion to popular culture and social conventions. His contribution to the modern world will be felt for decades to come. Gucci hopes that this exhibition will inspire future generations to be as fearlessly inventive.
At the heart of this exhibition is sound: the sound of one of the greatest music and style icons of modern times. Sound is also at the heart of Sennheiser, who are delighted to be providing the audio equipment for this genuinely unforgettable experience. The Sennheiser audio guide and groundbreaking sound system were installed with this in mind.
