TIckets to the David Bowie exhibition at the V&A in London are selling like hot cakes. There are around 300 items on display, tracing Bowie’s career as a writer, musician, designer, singer and performer.
Co-curator Victoria Broackes said: “His individualism seems to have inspired a generation to feel that that we all have it within ourselves. We have multiple personas, that we should not be pigeon-holed by sexuality or identity or dress, And I think that is perhaps his great message. Although of course, he is not political, so he doesn’t put it like that.”
The exhibition coincides with the release of Bowie’s new album “The Next Day”, his first new record for a decade, and includes iconic items such as his Aladdin Sane bodysuit and his Pierrot costume from Ashes to Ashes.
