I love David Bowie. "China Girl" David Bowie, Jareth from "Labyrinth David Bowie and even Flight of the Conchords' "Bowie in Space" ditty. Iman's husband is pretty effing dreamy. Luckily for us Midwesterners, David Bowie Is is at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (MCA) until January 2015, so we can visit any old day and love that man like he deserves to be loved.
David Bowie Is presents the first retrospective of the extraordinary career of David Bowie—one of the most pioneering and influential performers of our time. More than 400 objects, most from the David Bowie Archive—including handwritten lyrics, original costumes, photography, set designs, album artwork, and rare performance material from the past five decades—are brought together for the first time.
Even better, when I read that MCA would be playing "Labyrinth" in all of its sparkly glory, I honestly couldn't contain my excitement and neither could my fellow Jareth lovers. I hope you enjoy our outfits as we much as we enjoyed David Bowie's inexplicably tight pants.
