BOWIE by MICKROCK is an original multimedia exhibition featuring photographic works, music, videos, films and documentaries along an immense exhibition hall of 3,000m2.

 It is based on the creation of Ziggy Stardust and the reinventions of Bowie throughout his career. Not only was Mick Rock the photographer who portrayed the musician from his initial debut, but was also a creative partner in the gestation and image of the star who would change the history of music forever.

The documentary film "Shot!" was launched at the Tribeca Film Festival 2016 in New York City and then at the London Film Festival a month later. Two of the original videos that are shown in the vintage format (16mm) are "Space Oddity" and "Life on Mars", among other short films created by Mick Rock for David Bowie as 'John, I'm Only Dancing’ and 'Jean Genie'. The exhibit also contains texts, letters and manuscripts of David Bowie among many materials of Mick Rock’s personal archive.

​The show was launched worldwide at the Taschen Gallery in Los Angeles, California, in October 2015 along with the book "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust" which sold out within a few days from its release. 

Both the exhibition and the book became a historical event from their outset. Months later, David Bowie would leave this world and the work of Mick Rock would become an itinerant sanctuary for the millions of followers of one of the greatest geniuses in the whole planet earth.
