In addition to the artwork, the exhibition also gives a great insight into the artist's process with the inclusion of behind the scenes films.

Notorious: Duffy's Celebrity Portraits @ Monash Gallery of Art: From March 30th
I have been hoping that this David Bowie exhibition would open in Melbourne, but it looks unlikely to happen any time soon. But it is not all bad news - as Bowie fans are sure to be delighted with this forthcoming Monash Gallery of Art exhibition, which celebrates the work of the late British photographer, Brian Duffy.

Duffy is best known for the cover art of Aladdin Sane, Bowie's classic 1973 album and this exhibition brings together his 'celebrity portraits'. Alongside Bowie, other cool cats appearing at this exhibition include Sir Michael Caine (and his glasses), John Lennon and Terrence Stamp - well, in photographic form.
It is worth noting that there is a companion exhibition, entitled Swinging: The Fashion Photography of Brian Duffy at Sofitel Melbourne, from March 1st also. This exhibition feature portraits of Jean Shrimpton, Jane Birkin and Brigitte Bardot.
