David Bowie Is Exhibition - give it a permanent home or a world tour.
David Bowie is exhibition travelled the world for 5 years stopping at 12 museums and attracting over 2 million visitors between March 2013 and July 2018. The Victoria and Albert Museum in London curated and opened the exhibition before it travelled the world.
It was a blow to the David Bowie community, music lovers, artists and those interested in the world of fashion and art when it was decided to return David Bowie’s archive into storage and stop the exhibition. David had a massive cultural impact on the world and continues to do so. His inspiring archive of objects and ideas impacted those who viewed them and interacted with them in a very positive way, inspiring many to follow their dreams and expedite their own ideas.
The global popularity of David Bowie Is speaks for itself. If there were a permanent home for the exhibition, or if it toured the world again, it would attract at least as many visitors as the 2 million on its first run and would inspire man younger fans and those interested in culture to follow their dreams.
David Bowie Is a vital, inspirational, motivating, learning, immersive, wonderful, educational experience with special kind of significance. David Bowie left a very present footprint on the world that needs to be continually shared with the peoples of the world.
Please, bring it back to us. It now rests with David Bowie’s management in New York to make that decision. Thank you.
