The V&A Museum is set to host a live David Bowie cinema event to celebrate the end of its exhibition.
Launched earlier this year, the V&A's retrospective on David Bowie's career has been an overwhelming success. The most successful exhibition in the museum's 150 year history, more than 200,000 visitors have already perused the vast collection.
Set to end later this year, the Bowie exhibition will climax with a nationwide live cinema event. The film 'David Bowie is happening now...' will be shown across the country, ensuring that visitors who travelled far and wide to see the actual exhibition can take part in its finale.
Featuring hidden stories of objects from the collection, the film also contains a number of special guests and an introduction from museum curators Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh. Martin Roth, V&A Director, said: "Visitors have gone to great lengths for a chance to see our exhibition so we wanted to give everyone across the country one last opportunity to experience it for themselves. This is the first time the V&A has taken part in a live broadcast event of this magnitude and we are extremely excited to be working with such a talented production team to present the phenomenon that is David Bowie to the widest possible audience."
Directed by BAFTA winning director, Hamish Hamilton and produced by Done & Dusted Productions Ltd. Hamilton, the screening of 'David Bowie is happening now' takes place on August 13th.
