The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and Martin-Gropius-Bau Berliner Festpiele in Berlin each offer exhibits about David Bowie's career.

It's raining David Bowie museum exhibits in Chicago and Berlin.

Starting this September, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago will exclusively host a traveling artifact exhibit surrounding English music innovator David Bowie.

Chuck Sudo notes the exhibition,"David Bowie Is", will run September 2014 through January 2015 and showcase everything from handwritten lyrics, original costumes/set pieces and photograph/artwork that document his half-century career.


Focusing on the 67-year-old's constant evolution as a performer and singer, the article posted last August titled "Museum Of Contemporary Of Art Chicago Chosen As U.S. Host Of 2014 David Bowie Exhibit" reports the extraordinary display of over 300 objects is the "first-ever detailed look" of the singer's true influence throughout pop culture and society.

Who doesn't remember those tight pants and the crooning voice of Goblin King Jareth?

Meanwhile "Chicago Artists To Cover Classic David Bowie Albums at MCA This Fall" by Chicagoist's Jon Graef provides background for the music exhibition that'll be running concurrently with "David Bowie Is" in November.

"Bowie Changes" highlights the musician's evolution of sound.


For example, on November 15, avant-garde, pop-rocker Bobby Conn will interpret Station to Station. The 1976 album helped to bridge the funk and soul of Young Americans through The Thin White Duke persona to more manic, expressive German electronic band sound. Station to Station features singles "Golden Years" and "Stay."

Duo Jon Langford and Sally Timms will tackle more classic David Bowie songs on Nov 21. Langford and Timms' work in the post-punk-band The Mekons will keep in the same vein of Bowie while offering their own unique voices to songs. Langford's grit and Timms' native English murmur provide a nice balance to Bowie's range.


And on Nov 22, rock band Disappears will tackle the first of the Berlin Trilogy with Low. The band will amplify the rock and electronic used in the krautrock style to highlight Bowie's collaboration with Brian Eno. Released singles "Sound and Vision" and "Be My Wife" will surely be covered.

Each music experience will begin in evening at 7:30. Prices will depend on patron status. MCA members will pay $16, nonmembers $20, and students get in for $10. For more information, call the MCA Box Office at 312-397-4010 or buy the tickets online.


Of course, Chicago isn't the only host to a large collection since Berlin's been hosting its own display of Bowie's Trilogy years. "(R)evolution in Berlin: The David Bowie Epic Exclusively at Martin-Gropius-Bau" by Lisa Paul Streifeld reminds readers that it was the Berlin years that saw the beginning of the "Ziggy Stardust glam persona and subsequent L.A. drug-addicted megalomaniacal underworld descent."

His time spent in West Berlin offered many different philosophies and connections to German thinking.


The display at the Martin-Gropius-Bau Berliner Festpiele offers a Bowie Berlin Walk daily tour, but don't expected to see Angela Bowie, the Englishman's wife, whose absence "would have made the myth complete." The exhibition does show various influences like fashionably ambiguous Marlene Dietrich and painter Erich Heckel, though.

And according to the Huffington Post article, Nietzsche's impact is found throughout the trilogy, expressing the German's philosophy after putting various physical memorabilia pieces together to create a whole picture.

 


Especially when you consider the German years also saw the artist living with Iggy Pop.

If you're in Chicago or Berlin, take a tour and see what's helped multiple generations define themselves through outrageous and authentic expression.
