David Bowie is in its Final Week


David Bowie is. As in, he exists, he lives, he endures, he experiences, he is. And then there is the need to complete the sentence. The David Bowie is Exhibition at ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) in Melbourne effectively and successfully delivers an immersive and sensory experience that allows you to complete the sentence for yourself.

The exhibition showcases his work over the past five decades, with heavy emphasis on his early influences and his work and collaborations in the 1970s. Once described as a "self-constructed freak," David Bowie's creative practices and progression as a singer, songwriter, artist, author, and actor do not appear to be contrived nor freakish, rather they are purely expressions of his authentic self.

The notion of freedom of expression is often construed as an act of defiance or rebellion, but only if it challenges the social mores of the time. What makes David Bowie so intriguing is that his avant-garde authenticity transcends time, and continues to be modern, current, and relevant. David Bowie is an artist, David Bowie is a creative and prolific innovator, David Bowie is provocatively and boldly authentic.

The David Bowie is ACMI Exhibition is in its final week. Open until midnight on October 30 and October 31 and ending on November 1. Tickets at acmi.net.au.
