BOWIE The Photographs Arrives At The Morrison Hotel Gallery
Although David Bowie left us way too soon, his spirit will forever live on in the music and the imagery he spent decades fashioning. Morrison Hotel Gallery is celebrating the life and career of the legend with an exhibit running from February 23- March 23, 2018 entitled, BOWIE The Photographs.
BOWIE highlights prized photos chronicling his career. The exhibit is on display at all 3 gallery locations including New York, Los Angeles, and Maui where all images are available for purchase on site, or via their website. “After almost two decades of expertise in curating the shows of great artists, Morrison Hotel Gallery is very excited about this exhibit,” noted Casey Fannin, director of Morrison Hotel Gallery’s Los Angeles location. “BOWIE will feature photographs from some of his most iconic personas. From his start as Davy Jones to his gender bending turn as Ziggy Stardust. His performance as The Man Who Fell to Earth, and his transformation into the Thin White Duke. David Bowie, and the photographers that captured him on film, deserve to be celebrated. This is the perfect way to start off the exhibits and sales we’re going to have this year.”
Some captured his electric performances, or candid, behind-the-scenes photos of Bowie casually hanging out with fellow rockers Iggy Pop, Keith Richards, Trent Reznor and Tina Turner. The collection also highlights stylized shots that ultimately became legendary album covers. The exhibit incorporates prints by Duffy, Gerald Fearnley, Lynn Goldsmith, Bob Gruen, Guido Harari, Markus Klinko, Geoff MacCormack, Terry O’Neill, Neal Preston, Mick Rock, Masayoshi Sukita, Barry Schultz, and Barrie Wentzell.
BOWIE opens one week before the highly anticipated Brooklyn Museum debut. It is the final global tour of the exclusive David Bowie exhibit. It will feature costumes, art, and additional items from the David Bowie Archive, including a collection of photographs that will be available for sale at all Morrison Hotel Gallery locations.
