Two years after his epochal passing, the sense of David Bowie still being front and center of the cutural zeitgeist is palpable – especially in the way his music continues to influence yet another generation.
But the physical manifestations of our love for him are still many and sundry, as well. And a new exhibition at the Morrison Hotel Gallery, succinctly titled BOWIE, debuted this week, just days before the opening of the Brooklyn Museum’s David Bowie Is – which happens to be the final stop on the tour for that monumental show, since it originated at London’s V&A back in 2013.
The Morrison Hotel Gallery show will feature some of the most striking images of The Thin White Duke ever captured – and done so by the legends of rock photography including Mick Rock, Bob Gruen, Geoff MacCormack, Barry Shultz, Duffy and Neal Preston. It will simultaneous open at their NYC, LA and Maui locations.
“An enigma and masterpiece of his own creation, it’s no secret that the multitudes of David Bowie have redefined the very essence of rock & roll,” explains Marcelle Murdock, director of Morrison Hotel Gallery in NY. “From the Aladdin Sane album cover shot by Duffy to the intimate portraits of Geoff MacCormack, this exhibition explores his countless angles and identities. As much a tribute to the man and the myth as a celebration of the photographers that have immortalized the legend in glitter and glory, BOWIE is bound to be this spring’s most talked about show.”
We’re inclined to agree.
