David Bowie. Serious Badass.
The Museum of Arts & Design in NYC is presenting “David Bowie, Artist:”
"a multi-platform retrospective re-framing Bowie’s daring, multi-discipline career as that of an artist working primarily in performance. From his roots in such performance-based practices as cabaret, mime, and avant-garde theater, to Ziggy Stardust, his revolutionary tour that synthesized theater, music, and contemporary art into a rock spectacle, as well as his innovative video collaborations, and his work in cinema and theater, David Bowie, Artist presents Bowie as one of the most iconoclastic cultural producers of the 20th century."
And my head exploded! Guess I know where I’ll be spending my June nights this Summer as they’re screening most of the movies he’s appeared in. “The Hunger”, “Basquiat”, and “Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence” are faves.
Who’s your favorite Bowie? Andro Hippie Bowie? Ziggy Stardust? Aladdin Sane?Diamond Dogs Bowie? Thin White Duke? Berlin Bowie? Scary Monsters Bowie? Let’s Dance Bowie? Tin Machine Bowie?
My personal fave is Berlin Bowie (“Heroes”).
