n°159/ Seamless Bowie

February 2015

by Nathalie Azoulai

After its tremendous success at the V&A of London, David Bowie Is is touring and finally coming to Paris. With his multi-persona moving seamlessly between genres – glam rock, funk, soul, disco, electronic- and iconic cities- London, Berlin, New York- the popstar invented the modern concept of "body on show", always taking one step ahead of the curve so as to still inspire artists and creators. See last Dior fashion show staging a Space Odyssey Bowie could not deny to Raf Simons. Showing unreleased documents and recordings such as photographs and video, costumes, set components, handwritten pages, drawings and instruments, the exhibition should be a vivid trendbook to browse and enjoy. Starting soon on March, 3 at the Philarmonie de Paris.
