David Bowie: A Rock ‘n’ Roll Chameleon

Through March 23, Bowie, an exhibition featuring photographs from some of David Bowie’s most iconic personas is on view at all three Morrison Hotel Gallery locations (New York, Los Angeles and Maui). “An enigma and a masterpiece of his own creation, it’s no secret that the multitudes of David Bowie have redefined the very essence of rock & roll,” said Marcelle Murdock, director of Morrison Gallery in NY, in a statement.

From Ziggy Stardust to the Thin White Duke to Major Tom, among other characters, Bowie continuously reinvented himself. The images in Bowie hightlight the artist’s numerous identities and are as much a tribute to Bowie as to the photographers who captured him on film. Photographers highlighted in the exhibition and sale include Duffy, Gerald Fearnley, Lynn Goldsmith, Bob Gruen, Guido Harari, Markus Klinko, Geoff MacCormack, Terry O’Neill, Neal Preston, Mick Rock, Masayoshi Sukita, Barry Schultz and Barrie Wentzell.

While Bowie in on view at the Morrison Hotel Gallery locations, the Brooklyn Museum will debut David Bowie is, an exhibition exploring the artist’s creative process by presenting approximately 400 items including costumes, handwritten lyrics and artwork, drawn from the David Bowie Archive.
