David Bowie On View at the Museum of Arts and Design

Lady Gaga is certainly not the first spandex wearing pop star to fancy herself a performance-artist-cum-musician. Long before Mother Monster came David Bowie aka Ziggy Stardust in a cloud of glitter, curve hugging bodysuits, and platform shoes.

Now, the sexually ambiguous space invader has his own retrospective at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City. The show, evocatively titled “David Bowie, Artist,” seeks to re-frame the glam rocker’s artistic output as a lifelong performance piece of sorts. The museum’s press release claims, “Bowie has crafted a powerful fusion of music, culture, and other performance practices — one that has become the blueprint for contemporary artists working in performance.”

The exhibition wants visitors to look beyond just his musical career to examine Bowie’s “total artistic output” which means that his music videos, interviews, and concert footage will be on display, as well as a series of film screenings of Bowie’s most notable film appearances, including “Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars,” “The Hunger,” “The Man Who Fell To Earth,” “The Labyrinth,” “Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence,” “Basquiat,” and “The Linguini Inc”.

 

David Bowie, Artist” will be on view until July 15, while a two-week run of “The Man Who Fell to Earth,” begins at Film Forum June 24-July 7, in conjunction with the exhibition.
