Museum of Arts and Design Readies David Bowie Retrospective

Ground control to major…museum show! David Bowie will get his due as a performance artist in a retrospective opening May 9 at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. With “David Bowie, Aritst,” MAD sets out to “expand past his notoriety as a musician” to showcase “the too-often-overlooked diversity and multifaceted nature of Bowie’s total artistic output,” according to a press release issued by the museum. The program includes a film series—from Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and The Hunger to Basquiat and a new 35mm print of The Man Who Fell to Earth—as well as kiosks showing music videos, interviews, concert footage, and other audio-visual goodies (fingers crossed for a clip of Bowie’s brilliant cameo on Extras, below). The Bowiefest, which runs through July 15, is presented in conjunction with MAD’s intriguing summer exhibition: “Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities,” which will showcase small-scale, hand-built depictions of artificial environments and alternative realities by the likes of James Casebere, Walter Martin and Paloma Muñoz, Mat Collishaw, and Amy Bennett.
