WITH David Bowie’s comeback single Where are we now? released this week, and an exhibition celebrating his extraordinary career coming up in March at the V&A, it is fair to say that the iconic artist is firmly back in the lime-light.
The Thin White Duke is back, and timing couldn’t be better for The Vinyl Factory to announce a new exhibition and publication featuring 45 of the legendary singer’s iconic 7” single covers.
Dating from Starman (1972) to Without You (1984), Nacht Musik will exhibit Bowie’s radically shifting personas from Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane to the Thin White Duke and the Berlin era.
Looking back at a decade of continual reinvention and striking aesthetics, Nacht Musik showcases the extraordinary vision of the creative army of artists, designers and photographers behind Bowie’s illustrious style.
As the exhibition title suggests, it also pays special tribute to Bowie’s time in Berlin during the late 1970s.
This was a period of heightened creativity for the rising-star in which he collaborated with Brian Eno on the seminal Berlin Trilogy.
It is this experimental era that Bowie evokes in his latest single Where Are We Now?, his first recording in a decade.
The collection of 7” vinyl singles will be purchasable as a framed artwork from the gallery.
A special commemorative catalogue also features 45 of the 7” singles, a vinyl pressing of a Bowie interview, a fold out print and an essay by collector Toby Mott.
There are just 300 copies of this limited edition publication, and it is available to pre-order exclusively from www.vfeditions.com.
Nacht Musik, presented in association with The Mott Collection, will take place between 7th February 2013 – 4th March 2013 at The Vinyl Factory, Chelsea
