Experience this groundbreaking exhibition–described by The Times as "stylish & outrageous" and The Guardian as "a triumph"–on the big screen in gorgeous HD. The film takes the audience on an extraordinary journey through the "David Bowie is" exhibition with special guests including legendary Japanese fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto, Pulp front-man Jarvis Cocker, and other collaborators, to explore the stories behind some of the key objects that document Bowie’s artistic career, including a remarkable collection of photographs, stage costumes, and other rare possessions from the David Bowie Archive.

The exhibition curators, Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh, provide fascinating insight into the most memorable music videos and original costumes, as well as more personal items such as never-before-seen handwritten lyrics, album cover artwork, set designs and diary entries, which reveal the creativity and evolution of Bowie’s ideas.

Now on a global tour that has already travelled to Toronto, Sao Paulo, Berlin, and opening soon at the MCA in Chicago, "David Bowie is" now comes to Seattle through this unique cinema event.
