As previously reported, a David Bowie touring exhibition featuring over 300 costumes, photographs, album artwork, handwritten lyrics, and more from the official David Bowie Archive will be on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago from September 23rd through January 4th.  Tickets and more info on attending the exhibit is posted here.

To celebrate the exhibition's arrival in the United States, a documentary tour of the ground breaking exhibition will be screened at select theaters nationwide on September 23rd. David Bowie Is was filmed on the closing night of the exhibition in London and was directed by Hamish Hamilton, the director of the Opening Ceremony at the London Olympic Games in 2012.

"The film takes the audience on an extraordinary journey through the David Bowie is exhibition with special guests including legendary Japanese fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto, Pulp front-man Jarvis Cocker, and other collaborators, to explore the stories behind some of the key objects that document Bowie’s artistic career. The exhibition curators, Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh, provide fascinating insight into the most memorable music videos and original costumes, as well as more personal items such as never-before-seen handwritten lyrics, album cover artwork, set designs and diary entries, which reveal the creativity and evolution of Bowie’s ideas."

All the U.S. screenings take place on September 23rd. The Detroit area screening takes place at the Main Art Theater in Royal Oak. For other cities, or to learn more about the film visit the official site here.

*Fans in Windsor, Ontario: The Cineplex Odeon at Devonshire Mall in Windsor has a screening September 25th and September 27th.
