David Bowie: Among the Mexican Masters
Celebrate the life and legacy of icon David Bowie in a special exhibition of exclusive images by Fernando Aceves of the late, legendary singer-songwriter taken during his historic 1997 Earthling album tour to Mexico City. This new exhibition is the first one dedicated to David Bowie in the U.S. and is part of a cultural exchange between Los Angeles and Mexico City for 2017. The exhibition features about 35 color images showcasing intimate moments between Bowie and the cultural heritage of Mexico made during his only visit to Mexico City 20 years ago. Aceves, a celebrated local rock and jazz photographer, was commissioned to accompany the British rock star for 3 days through the city to commemorate his stops at various cultural landmarks. David Bowie: Among the Mexican Masters is a uniquely important exhibition that builds on Forest Lawn Museum’s ongoing efforts to present subjects and installations that resonate with contemporary society and today’s broader cultural context. The Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. Admission and parking are FREE.
