Event description

Description

Kevin Concannon, director, School of Visual Arts

Rock star, performance artist, and fashion icon, David Bowie’s career moved from one persona to the next with astonishing speed and grace over the course of five decades. And with each new persona came a new musical style. From the glam rock of Ziggy Stardust, the decadent Diamond Dog, the coke-fueled Thin White Duke, the Berlin-based Avant Gardist, and Dance Floor Pop Star, and more, Bowie was always one step ahead of the zeitgeist and, with Lazarus, one step ahead of his own mortality. This slide-illustrated talk considers his many changes leading up to final and virtual incarnation as Lazarus.
