Get a frontstage and backstage look at Bowie's legendary personas – from Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane and the Thin White Duke to the elder statesman of today.

The fruits of an unprecedented free reign to romp in the David Bowie archives, this show brings together the iconic costumes, instruments, album sleeve artwork and the rest with more private matter: Bowie’s own sketches, musical scores and handwritten set lists. It explores the broad range of Bowie’s collaborations with artists and designers in the fields of fashion, sound, graphics, theatre, art and film.
