Tribute to DAVID BOWIE  

Exhibition at Carré Doré Monte-Carlo from the16th of December 2016 - 31st of January  2017 

Curator: Flavia Cannata

The Carré Doré gallery monte-Carlo pays its tribute to David Bowie. 

The exhibition is entirely dedicated to the extraordinary pop icon - one of the most audacious, influential, and innovative artist of the contemporary musical world. A chameleon par excellence, a visionary, extremely attentive to all new trends. Through this exhibition, we aim to express our love and admiration for the artist who, throughout his 5 decades of stardom, was able to keep up with the changing times, all while staying true to himself and his fans. The gallery has gathered several artists who were able to observe and reinterpret the creative process of the White Duke. Their pieces show just how much his work has penetrated and impacted the wide range of creative fields like art, fashion, photography, design, theatre and contemporary culture in general. Ziggy Stardust has left an permanent mark on visual pop culture. 


"Bowie has managed to stay relevant throughout the constant shift of eras and trends, a trend-setting icon that has influenced the taste and the style of various generations. I could never imagine another artist who could have done in many lifetimes what he did in 50 years. » 

Maurizio Di Maggio Journalist and speaker at  RMC
