“He‘s in the best selling show”
The UK’s Sunday Telegraph newspaper reports today that The V&A's David Bowie is exhibition is set to be “the most successful show in the museum's history.”.
The article continues: “The V&A has sold more than 26,000 tickets for the show which opens next month, the museum’s highest ever figure for advance bookings.”.
Apparently the museum has seen a marked increase in new memberships since David Bowie is was announced, possibly because members get access to a private members only preview.
The Telegraph has illustrated the item with some fascinating exclusives from the show including an original storyboard for the Ashes to Ashes video drawn by Bowie and a preparatory sketch for an unrealised film, set in Hunger City, which became Diamond Dogs. (Both pictured here)
Other exclusives include a sketch on a Gitanes cigarette packet drawn by David Bowie in Berlin, in 1976.
