Travel: Bowie at the V&A
Last Saturday was the opening of the huge David Bowie Is exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London — and it's definitely going to be one of the blockbuster art shows in Europe this year, with a record pre-sold 40,000 tickets. Phaidon has an interesting two part interview with show co-curator Geoffrey Marsh, Director of Theatre and Performance at the museum — read it here. The exhibition itself runs until August 11 2013.
Shown here is a rare outtake from photographer Brian Duffy's 1973 shoot of David Bowie for the cover of Bowie's album Aladdin Sane, on view at the V&A show and also included as a print along with the limited edition book Duffy...Photographer 2011, available from Vintage Seekers.
