David Bowie is, Philharmonie de Paris

This retrospective premiered at the Victoria and Albert in London over a year ago, and attracts crowds way too large for its own good in Paris at the moment.
Despite specific pre-bookings, we were squeezed in among loads of other - mostly middle-aged, like us - Bowie-fans, making it hard at least for me to take the time to truly admire the costumes, manuscripts, videos and other objects on display.

Moreover, the period in focus clearly ended with 'Scary Monsters' in 1980, so it was really only a decade of Bowie's admittedly variegated career that was under study.

Still, a beautifully heterogeneous exhibition!
