The man from Mars is 66 today, celebrating with a new single preceding his first cd release in ten years come March. And a video directed by artist, Tony Oursler. All of this is to coincide with what is sure to be one of the most talked about museum exhibits of 2013.
The Victoria and Albert Museum in London is building a massive retrospective of Bowie’s career, stitching together his ground breaking costumes, music, photography, set designs, films and more.
The exhibit will run 23 March – 28 July 2013; and the V&A will run curator talks during that time to accompany the exhibit. Never a better reason to head over to Londontown.
