Modern Rocks Gallery announced that their exhibition, “David Bowie: Starman,” featuring a collection of rare David Bowie prints spanning the prolific artist’s career, will run from November 11 through the end of this year.
The exhibition is curated by Steven Walker, the owner of Modern Rocks Gallery. It will feature a number of Bowie’s most iconic shots, including album covers.
The opening reception on November 11 will take place at Modern Rocks, located at 916 Springdale Road, Canopy, Building 3, Austin, Texas 78702.
The event will also feature Bowie-themed cocktails and refreshments provided by Mark Shilling of ShillingCrafted. There will be a Bowie-themed costume contest hosted and judged by well-known musician, audio engineer and record producer Tim Palmer.
“It’s hard to find anything to say that hasn’t been said before about David Bowie,” states Walker. “He was the most innovative, the most creative and easily the most enigmatic performers of our time, continually shapeshifting, reinventing, and pushing boundaries. He was a unique visionary and a true artist in every way.”
“Bowie also understood the power of collaboration and the importance of the photographer as a crucial part of the puzzle when it came to sharing his vision. The prints on display have come direct from the photographers and show Bowie through the years, from the late 1960s through to Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, The Thin White Duke and beyond. It’s a remarkable collection that I’m proud to have pulled together. David Bowie: Starman is a must see for any Bowie fan, and if you’re not a fan yet, you will be after seeing his stunning visual journey,” he adds.
