David Bowie

Venue: Cinema (St James Cavalier)

The world of music and people lost an iconic, androgynous star on January 10th, 2016. His life, lyrics, fashion, extreme personalities, set designs and costumes, instruments and album artwork will be remembered once more through an encore screening of the extensive retrospective collection of artefacts gathered from the David Bowie Archive. The touring exhibition was first put on show Victoria & Albert Museum, which turned out to be the fastest-selling the V&A’s exhibition history – a testament to the popularity and intrigue which David Bowie generated throughout his lifetime.

First released in 2013, the David Bowie Is.. documentary film takes the audience on a fascinating journey through the exhibition accompanied by special guests, including the legendary Japanese fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto, Pulp front-man Jarvis Cocker, among others, to explore the stories behind some of the key objects which document Bowie’s artistic career. The curators, Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh also provide expert insight into the most memorable music videos and original costumes, as well as more personal items such as, the never-seen-before handwritten lyrics, album cover artwork, set designs and diary entries which reveal the creativity and evolution of Bowie’s ideas.
