Bowie fans rejoice — a beautiful exhibition in honour of the music legend launches in Dublin next month. 

the ebow gallery will re-open to the pubic in April to play host to the Irish instalment of the incredible 'Bowie by Duffy' exhibition.

The exhibit reflects the intimate and fascinating relationship between David Bowie and Irish photographer, Brian Duffy, famed for his iconic Aladdin Sane album cover.

Between 1972 and 1980 Duffy worked with Bowie on five powerful photo sessions — from Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane and White Sands to Lodger and Scary Monsters. 

The show will feature a wealth of rare and previously unreleased images from all five sessions.

“For me, this show is a celebration of the dynamic relationship between two of the centuries greatest artistic innovators - both of whom have strong family ties to Ireland. I have been working closely with Chris Duffy, an incredible photographer in his own right, to bring this important show to the capital. The vibrancy, energy and knowledge that he exudes is infectious and we are so excited to welcome him back to Ireland. I am delighted to bring the gallery back to life with such an incredible show.”

David Douglas, MD of ebow

Limited edition investment prints will be available for sale along with other collectibles and prices range from €300 to €90,000.

Amazing chance for all Bowie fans to admire incredible work. 

The exhibition in Christchurch will run from April 13 for approximately three weeks.

Not to be missed.
