David Bowie AGO Toronto

Sprawling Bowie exhibit brings big glam to the AGO

David Bowie has touched down at the AGO in the form of a major exhibit covering five decades of the rockstar's prolific career with over 300 items from his personal archive. The construction of Bowie's multifaceted celebrity persona takes centre stage over two sprawling floors of costumes, memorabilia, photos, sketches, and sheet music. Essential viewing for super-fans, the show will also prove intriguing for casual Bowie followers or those merely interested in pop music's phantoms and constructed idioms. For others, this will feel a bit like exploring some creepy eccentric, wealthy relative's hoarded possessions after they've been laid out for auction in a warehouse. Either way, it's fascinating to wander one's way through this stardust archive.

Check out these 20 highlights from David Bowie Is at the AGO.
