The exhibition has been the fastest selling in the museum’s history — what is it about Mr Bowie that makes him so dazzling more than five decades after he started his career?
"I think he’s more relevant than ever. He’s still represents counter culture and his collaborative approach means that his extraordinary career touches the fields of art, design, fashion, sound, graphics, theatre, art, and film. The exhibition, which has taken almost three years to put together, was planned to reflect Bowie’s career to date and to show how his influence on popular culture is as relevant today as it was at the start of his music career in the mid 1960s."
And this week he’s bagged his first number one in 20 years… which neatly proves your point about Bowie's continuing influence.
"Of course! And I am as excited and thrilled as every other fan that Bowie is back. It’s so exciting that there is now new material to include in the exhibition, like the cover proofs of the new album design and puppets featured in the new single music video Where Are We Now?"
