The Multiple Readings of David Bowie

Two years ago the incredible talented David Bowie sadly passed away, and the world lost a music genius. A few years earlier I had been fortunate enough to visit the David Bowie exhibition in the V&A museum, London. He had been heavily involved in the curation and what was presented was a unique and beautiful event. … Continue reading
