Voted as one of the greatest Britons ever in the BBC poll and record sales of 140 million copies. Those are just some of the accomplishments of David Robert Jones, better known for his stage name David Bowie. But his biggest success can be measured in the millions of people his music has touched around the world and many generations of musicians who were influenced by his artistry and personal style. For this reason, the Albert & Victoria Museum in London is curating the first ever international retrospective of the extraordinary career of this British musician, in collaboration with the David Bowie Archive. From March 23td visitors in London will have a chance to see more than 300 objects representing Bowie’s career, including handwritten lyrics, costumes (Ziggy Stardust bodysuits, 1972 designed by Freddie Burretti), photography (by Brian Duffy), films and videos (including ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’), set designs (Diamond Dogs tour 1974), musical instruments and album artworks (by Guy Peellaert and Edward Bell). The exhibition will run until July 18th 2013. Plenty of time to explore the genius that ‘David Bowie is’.
