"David Bowie Is", A Museum Exhibition

Lucky folks in the UK will have a chance to see a heap of Bowie stuff including costumes, photography and hand writeen lyrics when the exhilbit “David Bowie Is”, opens up next year.

To be housed in the Victoria and Albert museum in central London, this muliti sensory event is being called one of the major showings of the year.    Its Bowiepalooza with his memorobelia inhabiting massive space with over 60 aquired items

"It's about a person who through their art, design and performance, I think, has affected the way we live now," co-curator Victoria Broackes told Reuters.

"It's not designed as a retrospective. It's designed in the present tense. So, we do look at themes within his career that come back and forth, but what we want, is when you leave the exhibition, you have a sense of how Bowie has changed your world and the fact that there are elements of what he has done all around you."

Visitors will also be able to see Bowie's handwritten lyrics, photography, films, music videos as well as his set designs, instruments and album artwork.

"What we find at the V&A which is really great, is that despite living in a digital world, where so many things are possible at arms length, actually seeing objects up close is still absolutely thrilling" Broackes added.

"I think that's an interesting process, to be able to actually look at the designs and how they created the finished object.

"We are thrilled to be hosting this exhibition of the world's most creative artist," said V&A Director Martin Roth, who defended recent criticism that the show was not in keeping with the museum's art and design agenda.

"The V&A is uniquely placed to put on this exhibition. We are the world's number one museum on art and design. We're also very, very strong on performance and theatre. Theatre and performance came back to the museum in 2007, so David Bowie fits perfectly within that genre."

By the way Bowie has nothing to do with this show as he pointed out on his Facebook page last week,:

"Contrary to recent reports, I am not a co-curator and did not participate in any decisions relating to the exhibition."
