Almost 18 months since the sudden death of David Bowie, this acclaimed touring exhibition that delves deep into his career, artistic roots and achievements touches down in Barcelona. It was inaugurated in 2013 at London's Victoria & Albert Museum, with curators Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh given exclusive and extensive access to the musician's archive from which they selected 300 objects to tell a singular story about this man who was so influential and so meaningful for people around the world almost right from the start of his creative endeavours. The exhibition explores the way Bowie originated and evolved his concepts, constantly changing his style, both in terms of performance and appearance, and always looking for fresh ways to embrace and enlighten audiences. The items on display include handwritten lyrics, original costumes, set designs, instruments and album artwork, many of them personal belongings that had not been shown in public before.
