Interview with Curator Michael Darling about “David Bowie Is”


"Bowie is not just staying still, and he is not just a pop star, he is really trying to borrow and have dialogue with all these different fields. We are seeing this as a contemporary phenomenon. It feels right to us that an artist would venture out and not stay in their field."

James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator Michael Darling talks about David Bowie Is with Thea Liberty Nichols of ArtSlant. Darling discusses Bowie as an artist in a larger sense, how Bowie has blended media, and crossed over many artistic disciplines and genres, a practice that Michael Darling finds very relevant to contemporary artists’ practices.
