David Bowie exhibition at the V&A Museum in London

The V&A ( Victoria & Albert Museum) in London has been given unprecedented access to the David Bowie Archive to curate the first international retrospective of the extraordinary career of David Bowie. « David Bowie is » – the title of this exhibition –  will feature more than 300 objects that include handwritten lyrics, original costumes, fashion, photography, film, music videos, set designs and Bowie’s own instruments… This exhibition will be launched on March 23rd and will run until July 28th 2013. This is definitly a must-see for all fans around the world or simply music lovers like me who have always admired and appreciated this extremely creative and versatile artist! Here is a glimpse of  some artifacts from the future exhibition.
