Multimedia Touring Exhibition
by Bob Gruen
BOWIE by MICK ROCK is an extraordinary multimedia exhibition that showcases a captivating fusion of photography, music, videos, films, and documentaries, spanning across an immense exhibition hall measuring 3,000m2.
This immersive experience revolves around the genesis of Ziggy Stardust and David Bowie's transformative reinventions throughout his illustrious career.
Mick Rock, not only an acclaimed photographer capturing Bowie from his early beginnings, but also a creative collaborator instrumental in shaping the iconic image of the star who would forever change the course of music history.
The exhibition made its global debut at the Taschen Gallery in Los Angeles, California, in October 2015, accompanied by the release of the book "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust." The book quickly sold out within days, solidifying both the exhibition and the publication as historic milestones.
Saddly, only months later, David Bowie left this world, leaving behind a profound impact on his millions of devoted followers. Mick Rock's work became a cherished sanctuary, traveling across the globe, providing a captivating tribute to one of the greatest creative minds ever known on planet Earth.
