The Victoria & Albert Museum, London
David Bowie is
|Exhibition: 23 March - 11 August 2013|
The exhibition will explore the broad range of Bowie's collaborations with artists and designers in the fields of fashion, sound, graphics, theatre, art and film. On display will be more than 300 objects including Ziggy Stardust bodysuits (1972) designed by Freddie Burretti, photography by Brian Duffy; album sleeve artwork by Guy Peellaert and Edward Bell; visual excerpts from films and live performances including The Man Who Fell to Earth, music videos such as Boys Keep Swinging and set designs created for the Diamond Dogs tour (1974). Alongside these will be more personal items such as never-before-seen storyboards, handwritten set lists and lyrics as well as some of Bowie's own sketches, musical scores and diary entries, revealing the evolution of his creative ideas.
For David Bowie is, the Duffy Archive have loaned the V&A the original Aladdin Sane Dye Transfer Print and is a must see object for this highly anticipated exhibition.
Brian Duffy (Duffy) joined Artist Partners as the assistant to Adrian Flowers, another hugely talented photographer, in the early 1950’s.
It is Duffy's iconic images of the 1960's and 'Swinging London' along with his fashion photography for Elle, Vogue and Glamour that he is remembered for. He also shot two Pirelli calenders - 1965 and 1973 - and the most iconic image of the 1970's, the cover of David Bowie's 'Aladdin Sane'. Duffy also did two more album covers for Bowie - 'Scary Monsters' and 'The Lodger'.
Duffy was one of the most dynamic and inventive photographers of the 1960s. Together with his old muckers Terence Donovan and David Bailey, he made up 'The Black Trinity', a soubriquet used by Norman Parkinson to describe his new, highly successful competition.
Duffy died on 31st May, 2010 and the world of creative photography is a poorer place without him.
