The Paley Center of Media will pay tribute to the extraordinary legacy of David Bowie by reprising its landmark screening exhibition, David Bowie: Sound + Vision. Originally presented in 2002, Sound + Vision was the first retrospective devoted to the groundbreaking career of the ever-changing Bowie. The five-part screening series was culled from archives around the world as well as Bowie’s own library, showcasing the iconic musician’s pioneering work in music video, rarely seen performances, outtakes, documentaries, and interviews.
The first three packages (featuring his work from 1964–1982) will play on Saturdays in January in the Paley Center’s gallery, beginning at 12:15 pm in NY and 11:30 am in LA; the final two packages (1983–2002) will play on Sundays in January.
NY: Saturdays, at 12:15 to 5:45 pm
LA: Saturdays, at 11:30 am to 5:00 pm
