David Bowie Is - on tour

David Bowie Is - on tour

Monday 2 March to Wednesday 16 March

David Bowie's V&A extravaganza, 'Is' continues its world tour in Bologna, Italy, with further dates scheduled for Japan in 2017.

The exhibition is adapted to local markets.  For example, curators at the Melbourne leg explored his links to the Australian continent - the video for 'Let's Dance', Bowie's biggest selling record focused on the plight of Indigenous Australians and included images referencing slavery, a lost generation and the British nuclear testing in the 1950s.

Over 300,000 attended the show on its record breaking run at the V&A Museum in London and it has since gone on tour to museums in Canada, Brazil, Germany, the USA, France, and Australia.
