David Bowie is: the colossal exhibition ends its European tour in Bologna
You can visit the free exhibition “David Bowie is” in Europe for the last time: at Bologna’s Mambo museum from the 14th of July to the 13th of November.
It debuted in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum and has been held in many countries, including Canada, Brazil, France, Germany and Australia. Tomorrow, 14 July, it will come to Italy, precisely in Bologna, the last European stage of the tour, before going to Japan and the United States.
“David Bowie is” is a touring exhibition that has often been defined as colossal: more than 300 objects and installations retracing the extraordinary career of the White Duke, who died on 10 January.
Bowie at Mambo, Bologna
The location is Mambo, Bologna’s Museum of Modern Art, where the exhibition will be open to the public until 13 November 2016, sometimes even in the evening. As the President of Bologna Musei Lorenzo Sassoli revealed some time ago:
We’ve started the negotiations before Bowie died. A delegation came from London to visit Bologna’s Museum of Modern Art, which was deemed suitable also for its architectural characteristics.
The first international retrospective exhibition dedicated to the White Duke
“David Bowie is” is the first international retrospective exhibition on David Bowie’s extraordinary career: handwritten lyrics, original costumes – including Ziggy Stardust’s – pictures of Herb Ritts and Helmut Lang, set design, album covers and rare materials of the last five decades.
A majestic exhibition that demonstrates how Bowie’s work has been influencing music as well as art trends (from design to theatre, from cinema to fashion) for over fifty years in the western world.
In view of the event, Bologna got ready to present “David Bowie is” with the photographic exhibition Bowie before Ziggy. Photographies by Michael Putland. Through the British photographer’s pictures and memories, it told the story of a day in the life of Bowie, just before he started to perform as Ziggy Stardust. The free exhibition was hold until 30 April in the ONO Gallery of Contemporary Art.
