“I only find freedom in the realms of eccentricity.” – David Bowie
The National Liberty Museum is proud to announce our major winter exhibition Deconstructing Bowie: Freedom in Eccentricity, opening Friday, January 7, 2022, as part of the Fifth Annual Philly Loves Bowie Week, and continuing through April 3, 2022.
Throughout his long career, David Bowie found personal freedom in his unique forms of cultural expression. Through music, art, and fashion, Bowie disrupted and rebelled against societal expectations and norms, introducing new and more critical ways of thinking about race, sex, and gender. This exhibition celebrates David Bowie’s legacy in the creative freedom he inspired in generations of artists that have followed in his wake, artists who have continued to push boundaries and inspire others to do the same. In Deconstructing Bowie, we celebrate the timeless power of music and art to challenge cultural expectations and drive both personal and societal change. The artwork on display in Deconstructing Bowie will be for sale, with a portion of the proceeds donated to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), in partnership with Philly Loves Bowie Week.
